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.


1005 Cascade St.


Call it a valentine or just a gift for your best bud, school-age children can make friendship bracelets from 12:30 to 2 p.m. Feb. 14.


650 Main St.


It’s Fancy Schmancy Valentines for ages 5 and up from 3 to 5 p.m. Feb. 12. Fancy schmancy decorations provided.

Lake Stevens

1804 Main St.


The Antipodean Valentine Party for teens goes from 3 to 4:30 p.m. Feb. 8. And what’s “antipodean”? A librarian might tell you to look it up, but we’ll reveal: It means the opposite position. There will be black crafts, unsentimental cookies and a trivia game.


6120 Grove St.


Teens may kiss off Valentine’s Day at an “anti” party from 2 to 4 p.m. Feb. 9. The library promises a cranky craft session, moody music and spiteful snacks.

Teens can make candy iPods out of candy boxes from 4 to 5 p.m. Feb. 6.

Not in the mood? Attend the Anti-Valentine’s Day Party from 7 to 9 p.m. Feb. 15. Play board games, make duct tape roses, and decorate and eat un-valentine cupcakes.


4675 Harbour Pointe Blvd.


Teens who revel in the day can create duct tape roses and other V-Day crafts from 3 to 4:30 p.m. Feb. 14. No hateful hearts here, please.


311 Maple Ave.


It’s a valentine Crafternoon from 2 to 4 p.m. Feb. 9 in the children’s area of the library. Younger kids can cut and glue valentines to their heart’s content.
