Valentine’s Day has taken place for over a thousand years and is named after Saint Valentine.
The origins of Valentine’s Day are uncertain, legends credit Saint Valentine for holding secret marriage ceremonies for Roman soldiers in opposition to Emperor Claudius II, who believed marriage made soldiers weaker. In 496 AD, Pope Gelasius I proclaimed February 14 to be the feast day in honor of Saint Valentine.
Thanks to a grant from The Shumaker Family Foundation and the PNC Foundation, the Kansas City Public Library will be offering a new discovery club called KC Kids Create. They will be hosted at four locations: Bluford, Central, Plaza, and Trails West.
