Blind Date with a Book – 2014

Will it be Hot or Not?(Sing to the tune of “My Favourite Things” from the Sound of Music)

Brown paper book covers

Secured with tape,

I hope I take home a book I won’t hate!

On a blind date,

With an odd book,

I think I must be mad.

I simply remember this book was for free,

And then I don’t feel so baaaaad!

There’s no awkward questions, no forced conversation, no judgmental looks, no need to call. Just have a blind date with a book!

Books from an assortment of genres, departments, fiction & non-fiction are wrapped in brown paper, so you won’t know what book you check out until you get home. Sure, it might turn out to be a dud, or it could be the diamond in the rough you wouldn’t have given a chance otherwise. There’s no knowing until you check it out…

Look for the “Blind Date with a Book” display on the main level of the library – as soon as you walk in the front doors. We even have a special display on the lower level just for teens!  But hurry! This “dating scene” will only be around until Valentine’s Day!
