Teens and ‘tweens’ can join together for a Valentine’s Day protest and party soon.


The Dawson County Library’s annual Anti-Valentine Party encourages teens to come out at 3:30 p.m. Feb. 8 and participate in various games and activities. Tweens — or third through fifth graders — are invited to the gathering at 3:30 p.m. today.


Games include candy heart catapulting and sour candy endurance contests.


Young people can also compete to create the worst candy heart sayings of all time.


In a news release, Youth Services Specialist Tracy Walker said library staff “was so excited to have a number of teens join us last year.


“We’re hoping they enjoy it just as much this year.”


The Anti-Valentine Party is open to sixth through 12th graders. All programs are free and open to all interested students. For more information, call (706) 344-3690, or visit
