Blind Date with a Book

During the month of February have a blind date with a book.

  • Choose a wrapped book from the coffee table display for your "date."
  • Will it be romantic, informative, funny, suspenseful, heart-wrenching or simply not your cup of tea?
  • Fill out the Rate Your Date form inside the book and bring it to the Library Services Desk.

Here’s hoping you find the book of your dreams!
But if it turns out to be a dud, just return it.
No awkwardness—unlike a real blind date!
