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…
And don’t forget to “Rate your date!” Let us know if your blind date with a book was hot or not for a chance to win a library prize pack! Let us know via Facebook, here in the comments, or fill out a ballot bookmark at the library. We post the feedback we get on the library’s Pinterest Page.
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!
