Blind Date with a Book

Let Us Fix You Up with a Blind Date
(with a Book)

We'll select a variety of books, wrap them all up in 'oh so secretive' brown paper 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.

With each book is a 'Rate a Date' slip, simply say whatever you want about your date, you won't hurt our, or its, feelings.

Even if your date turns out to be a 'dud', all is not lost. With each slip you return, you can enter our draw for a prize. Blind Dates will be available, at all three branches, from February 2 to February 23.
