Blind Date with a Book
During the month of February, check out a
specially wrapped book from our display.
Take it home, unwrap it, show it your favorite spots to read. Enjoy it!
If you don’t like your blind date simply return it to the Library, its
feelings won’t be hurt. Choose another
date if you want!
When your date is over
be sure to fill out the “Rate your Date” card tucked inside your choice and
return it to the library along with your book for a chance to win a prize. Cards must be returned no later than March 5
for entry into our prize drawing.
There are also Children's books so families can rate their Play Date! These family friendly titles will bring smile to everyone's face. Similar to the adult books, there will be a "Rate your Play Date" card inside each book. Remember to fill out this slip and return it to the library to be entered in the drawing!
