Blind Date with a Book

February 11th, 2014 by calee51

During the month of February, we’d like to “fix you up” with a blind date–a book, of course . . . after all we ARE the Library!  We’ve selected a variety of books and wrapped them, so you won’t know the identity until you get to your reading rendezvous.

Will your date be fiction, nonfiction, funny, informative, scary?  You might be disappointed, or you might end up having a great time with a book you wouldn’t have chosen for yourself.

We hope you’ll let us know how your “date” went when you bring your book back.
