Blind Date with a Book at the Stanley Public Library!
Single? In a relationship? Married? No Problem! During the month of February, stop at the Stanley Public Library and have a blind date with a book.
All you need to do is check out a book on display. The books will be wrapped so you won’t know the identity of your blind date until you get it home. Will it be fiction, nonfiction, funny, informative or heart-breaking? There is a chance you could be disappointed, but you might have fun reading something you may have never ventured to read.
Inside each book will be a “Rate Your Date” card. Fill out the card and return it to the library. Don’t worry if you thought the book was a dud; your completed card enters you in a drawing for a prize! The cards must be returned by February 26 and the drawing will be held February 27.
The “Blind Date with a Book” event is open to patrons ages 16 and older and is sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
Stanley Public Library patrons now have access to 100 digital magazine titles through a service called Zinio, thanks to funding from the North Dakota State Library. With Zinio, patrons can check out the most current issues of favorite magazines and keep the issue as long as needed without having to return it.
The Zinio collection can be accessed at library.nd.gov. Click on “Services for the Public,” then “Online Library Resources.” Zinio can be found under the “Magazines and Newspapers” heading.
First-time users will need to set up a couple of accounts to get started. Visit the “Guides and Tutorials” page and follow the instructions for checking out and downloading free magazines. Patrons will need to follow instructions for the type of tablet being used. Zinio can also be found at rbdigital.com/northdakotastatend.
Patrons can also check out and read free magazines on a computer by following the instructions on the Zinio Library Collection and Check-out Guide.
Save money, save space and check out a digital magazine!
The Friends of the Library hold quarterly meetings the first Tuesday of March, June, September and November at 7:00 in the library. Everyone is welcome and invited to attend!
