There’s still a little time, but remember to return your “blind date” to the library by February 26 to be eligible for the prize drawing!
The wireless internet at the Stanley Public Library will be temporarily unavailable on Tuesday, February 12 from approximately 1:00 to 4:00 PM due to an equipment upgrade. We apologize for any inconvenience.
During January, the Stanley Public Library held a Reading for Rewards contest for students in grades 7-12. Students checked out library books, read and returned them for an entry into the contest. The winner for January was Sunshine Whitney, who read a book titled “The Haunting of Sunshine Girl.” Sunshine won a $25 Visa gift card sponsored by Braddock Insurance. Congratulations to Sunshine and all the contestants!
Single? In a relationship? Married? No problem! Beginning January 23, 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 eclectic assortment of books from a variety of genres 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 may have fun reading something you may have never ventured to read.
Inside each book is a “Rate Your Date” sheet. Fill out the sheet and return it to the library. Don’t worry if you thought the book was a dud; your completed sheet enters you in a drawing for a prize! The sheets must be returned by February 26 and the drawing will be February 28.
The “Blind Date with a Book” event is open to patrons ages 16 and older and is sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
