Roses and chocolates will be replaced by books and magazines at the Mundijong Public Library this Valentine’s Day for a special celebration to mark Library Lovers' Day 2018.

Bringing together bookworms from across Australia, Library Lovers’ Day 2018 recognises the invaluable contribution made by libraries and their staff to communities throughout the country.

Residents are invited to show their appreciation for the Mundijong Public Library by forming a human chain around the building in what is tipped to be Australia’s biggest library hug.

The day will also include a secondhand book sale hosted by the Serpentine Jarrahdale Library Friends, a writing table for people to pen ‘love letters’ to the library, and the opportunity to go on a mystery date with a book.

A minimum of 120 people is needed to form an unbroken hug around Mundijong Public Library and huggers are encouraged to register by Monday, February 12. A video of the library hug will be filmed at 3.45pm.
