During the month of February the library will feature a display of antique valentines presented to teachers by their students during the early years of the last century. These valentines were given to relatives of Loralyn Whitney, acquisitions librarian, and passed down through the family. Other personal effects owned by the teachers will also be on display. The recipients of the valentines include two great-aunts who taught elementary school in Streetsboro, Ohio, a rural community South of Cleveland; the third was her grandfather, Arthur Lee Whitney, a school principal and graduate of Edinboro Normal School, class of 1909. Some of the valentines are very elaborate examples. The display includes an antique inkwell, school bell, and items of clothing worn by the women. The public is invited to view this exhibit. The exhibit will be of interest to collectors and students and faculty in graphic arts.
