The History & Making of a Valentine Card
Sayreville Public Library
Thursday, Feb. 14, 1:00PM-3:00PM
Register Online or call 732-727-0212.
For hundreds of years, friends and lovers have celebrated Valentine’s Day.  In earlier times gloves were given as a token of affection.  People of wealth gave jewelry, and many young men and women made gifts. Love letters and poems were also popular. 

The Golden Age of the Valentine card was in the middle of the 19th century.  The cards were romantic and elaborately decorated with lace, glitter, sequins, fabric, and words of affection.  Today we will learn the history of the Valentine and make a basic card.

If you wish to decorate your card, then please bring such items as sequins, lace, ribbon, pictures, small artificial flowers, stickers and a needle and thread. Please also bring scissors and glue.

This program is for adults only.  Pre-registration required. Limited to 16.  To register, contact Alaina at, call her at 732-727-0212 ex. 25, OR register online!
