The ACPL is celebrating Valentine’s Day by offering teen programs and activities that don’t require a date. 

“So much of February is focused on Valentine’s Day and dating or romance,” said Beth Boatright, ACPL Director of Community Partnerships and Programs. “It’s fun to see activities for teens that promote meeting new people without the pressures that come with dating.”

Teens are invited to attend events focused on crafts, gaming, and poetry in a safe and affirming environment.

Some highlighted activities are:

Hand-sew a small plushy in this special program just for crafty Cupid-haters.

  • Dungeons & Dragons Feb. 14, 6–7 p.m. at Main Branch (900 Library Plaza) Do battle with monsters while seeking legendary treasures. Open to new and experienced players.

  • Open Mic Poetry Feb. 14, 6:30–7:30 p.m. at West Central Coffee (1006 Broadway)

Spoken word, poetry, and musical performances, as well as, writing time with an ACPL library host.

The Library is also partnering with local organizations including Great KIDS Make Great Communities, YWCA, Fort Wayne Mayor’s Commission, and Amani to host an event in recognition of National Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month.

These activities come just in time for February’s National Library Lovers’ Month which celebrates all the things there are to love about libraries.

All events are free and open to the public.
