WINCHESTER, Va. (WDVM) — February is National Library Lovers’ Month, a time dedicated to learning about the importance of your local library.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, many local libraries like Handley Regional Library System have become a resource for the community for things such as job training, free internet access and research materials. Libraries are also a place to pick up a new book to help beat quarantine boredom.

Library Lovers’ Day is on February 14th.
