What’s Galentine’s Day? It’s only the greatest day of the year! Galentine’s Day is a holiday created by Parks & Recreation character, Leslie Knope. It takes place on February 13th and is all about ladies celebrating ladies… breakfast-style.

As I was brainstorming ideas for February programs, I decided to eschew the typical Valentine’s Day party (I already had Blind Date with a Book planned for that) and throw a Galentine’s Day party. When I mentioned it to my after-school crowd, they were thrilled. However,┬ásince it was on a Saturday, only three of them showed up. It was still a blast, though! We had waffles, made friendship bracelets, and (per their request) watched some French cartoon about a ladybug girl.

The cost of the program wasn’t too outrageous. I spent about $25 on food and craft supplies. I highly recommend throwing your own library Galentine’s Day party next year!
