Blind date with a Book
The Library is offering a special program during the month of February.
Adults and young adults, do you judge a book by its cover? Now you won’t be able to. The library would like to ‘fix you up’ with a blind date with a book. The library will select a variety of books, put them in a plain brown envelope and you won’t know the ‘identity’ of your blind date till you get it home. Will it be fiction or non-fiction? Funny, informative, a mystery, true-crime??? Sure you might be disappointed; but then again … you may end up having a great read with something you wouldn’t have chosen for yourself.
