The Sno-Isle libraries are gearing up to help kids put a heart on it for Valentine’s Day. They’re offering craft sessions involving stickers and stamps for younger children, making candy “iPods” for tweens and teens, and anti-valentine crafts and parties for the nonbelievers. Most sessions require registration by calling the library or online at www.sno-isle.org.
