Blind Date with a Book

IMG_0519Single?  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 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, non fiction, 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” 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 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.
