Blind Date with a Book

img_0614Single?  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.
