How are you planning to celebrate Valentine’s Day this year? A romantic dinner, fine chocolates, red roses and a fancy card are great ideas but so is a stop at the Stanley Public Library to have a blind date with a book!
You can spice up your reading by checking out a book on display. The books are wrapped so you won’t know the identity of your blind date until you get it home. It gives you a chance to read outside your comfort zone, discover something new and possibly even learn something new about yourself.
Inside each book is a “Rate Your Date” card. Fill out the card and return it to the library. It doesn’t matter if you loved it or not; your completed card enters you in a drawing for a prize. The card must be returned by February 26 and the drawing will be held February 28.
Blind dates may not be fun, unless it’s with a book! The “Blind Date with a Book” event is open to patrons ages 16 and older and is sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
