“Valentine Chocolate Surprise” at Bonney Lake Library

The public can make a beautiful chocolate box and card to give to a sweetheart at the Bonney Lake Pierce County Library on Saturday, February 9, 2013 at 2 pm. This event is completely free and is sponsored by the “Friends of the Bonney Lake Library”. Kit Thompson, content writer for Pierce County Library System, explained: “Each of our libraries has a “Friends of the Library” that supports the libraries through book sales and sponsor events, which assists in buying equipment that the library normally couldn’t do. It’s a great asset to our libraries.”

Kit commented about the event: “I think it’s a fun way to your creativity, learn a new skill, and make a unique valentine gift for a loved one.” She discussed the best thing about the event, “It’s free. And while people are at the library, they have Valentine displays as well as Valentine themed books and videos that are fun to check out as well.”

According to Kit, this event is unique because it’s the only Valentine event this year, with the exception of the anti-Valentine event that will be coming up at the Summit Library on February 13, 2013.

Kit shared some interesting facts about the Bonney Lake Library: “Bonney Lake was built in 1982, renovated in 1996, and consists of 6,480 square feet. It is open 7 days a week; Monday through Thursday from 10 am 9 pm, Friday from 10 am to 6 pm, Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm, and Sunday from 1 pm to 5 pm.

We have 9 libraries in the Pierce County Library System that are open 7 days a week, the rest are open 6 days a week. The smaller libraries are closed on Sundays.
The Bonney Lake Library has a beautiful mural in the children’s area, with a hand painted balloon themed mural.”

For more information about the Valentine event, please call the Bonney Lake Library at: 253 548-3308. Kit recommends anyone who’s crafty; or a parent and teen to go together and have some bonding time together.

  1. This would be a great opportunity especially for guys to go and create something for the woman they love. And to show them that they are truly worth the time. Think how impressed your wife or girlfriend will be to know you made something for them with your own hands rather than simply buying something. As I learned long ago. “It’s the little things that matters most of all”

  2. Carly honestly how do you find all these great events you write about? You must have a crystal ball or something. I’m dragging my soon to be husband there and work together to build Chocolate surprise and enjoy it for-forever. Thanks Carly.

  3. Well heads up GUYS it’s not the amount of $ we spend but the amount of thought, planning, scheming, and consideration which goes into gifts–and the custom design of a special valentine box & card could really float the boat of our loved ones, This is especially true if (and only if) one of their primary love languages is GIFTS—so I’ve heard….Thanks for giving us poor guys a great IDEA Carly, your journalism is priceless..
