The YA Librarians Are Just Not That Into You: Getting Ready for our Anti-Valentine’s Day Party

The Anti-Valentine’s Day party seems to be a staple of Young Adult/Teen librarians, but this is my first ever. I’m still in the planning phase, but so far I’ve decided on including:

Right now, I’m putting up glittery angsty conversation hearts to hopefully get teens interested in showing up to the event. These are now hanging around the YA desk:

don't call me heart

meh heart

no thanks heart

go away

I effed up the lettering on this one, but I think the sentiment is clear:

anti-valentine's day heart

Have you ever held an Anti-Valentine’s Day party? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

  1. I did UnValentines parties the first couple years I was here. The first year, everyone was super excited about the idea. The next year, less so. Last year, they were mostly confused. Super fun things: make fake poop (or other sculptures) out of modeling chocolate. Vandalize some dollar store V-Day decorations. One year, I just did a project–Voodoo Doll pincushion (I think it’s PINNNED on Pinterest. Heh.) That was just confusing to some of them lol Oh and I had fun making some not-quite-romantic mix CDs. Weird Al helps, as do punk covers.
