Valentine’s Day: History and Origins Display in McCain Library


Student assistant Tamaria Reed (’22) created a display on the First Floor of the library (near the elevator) to help explore the origins of Valentine’s day. The display explains the most common origin theories, answers the reasoning behind why people consume and gift chocolate on the holiday, and  answers the question of why valentines are written.

Tamaria also highlights some of the classic movies and novels that coincide with the holiday, a list that includes titles that can be checked out from the library for the holiday.
