MONTEVALLO – Parnell Memorial Library will provide supplies for children to make valentines for local healthcare workers in February.

Starting on Tuesday, Feb. 1, anyone who would like to participate may stop by the library to make a valentine for a healthcare hero at Shelby Baptist Medical Center.

“We’re providing some blank cards and valentine stickers here at the library, and we’re also accepting homemade cards that kids can bring in or drop off,” Library Director Savannah Kitchens said. “Basically, we’re just trying to give back to our healthcare heroes and show them a little love.”

Completed valentines need to be brought to the library before Friday, Feb. 11.
