LEESBURG, GA (WALB) - Valentine's Day is right around the corner, but as some folks buy chocolates and roses... others are giving Cupid the evil eye.

"Be My Anti-Valentine" was the theme at the Leesburg Library tonight as people un-celebrated Valentine's Day.

They made anti-valentine cards, wrote break-up letters, and replaced real roses with duct tape ones.

The event allowed singles and jilted lovers a chance to vent their frustrations.

7th grader Bria Edwards says even at a young age, she knows all about lost love. "Yeah, I've been through it a lot of times," said Edwards.

 "I was just trying to find a program for teens around Valentine's Day that kind of pokes fun at it a little bit," said Librarian Abby Phillips.

The Anti-Valentine event was free and open to the public and was one of many events the library holds to give kids something to do in the evenings.
