Blind Date with a Book

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 you can find love at the library by having a blind date with a book!

Stop at the Stanley Public Library to spice up your reading by checking out a book on display. You won’t be able to judge the book by its cover because the books are wrapped, and 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 your date or not; your completed card enters you in a drawing for a prize. The card must be returned by February 25 and the drawing will be held February 28.

Some blind dates may not be fun but a date with a book is sure to be! The “Blind Date with a Book” event is open to patrons ages 16 and older and is sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
