Blind Dates are Fun!

We’re doing it again…a Blind Date with a Book! During the month of February, drop into the library and pick up one of our expertly wrapped books. You won’t know what you’re taking out until you get it home and unwrap it, but this year, we’ve given you a few clues to help you along.

20150202_132218Once you read the book, there is a fun “Rate Your Date” card inside the book. Fill it out and bring it back to the library with the book. We’ll post it on our Date Board so everyone can see how the dates have been going.

20150202_132211Don’t worry, this is a lot less risky than meeting someone new at a restaurant, and a lot more fun! If you don’t like the book, it’s no big deal. Bring it back, and try again if you like. We’ll have lots to choose from all month long!


Match Made in Heaven or a One-Night Stand?

February is the month of love, and to celebrate in our own way, we’re having a “Blind Date with a Book”!  Drop into the library anytime between now and Valentine’s Day and you can participate.


We’ve put together a great selection of our favourite books—fiction, non-fiction, old books and new—and covered them with pretty paper so that you can’t see what they are.  All you need to do is drop in, choose a book, sign it out and take it home to unwrap it. You might find a new favourite author, or just read something you wouldn’t normally pick up. The goal is to have fun.


So, will your selection be a match made in Heaven?  Or will it be a one-night stand? If you feel like it, let us know what you thought of your book by returning the cute card we’ve tucked inside. Love is in the air!
