Blind Date With a Book Now you can’t judge a book by its
cover! Let the library set you up on a blind date with a book. The books are wrapped up so you won’t know what you have until you get it home! The date could be a total dud or total stud! The book may be Adult Fiction, Adult Nonfiction, Young Adult Fiction, or Young Adult Nonfiction. Fill out the “Rate Your Date” form inside your mystery book and return the form to the circulation desk by February 28, 2014 to be entered to win a Barnes & Noble gift card.
Check out a “blind date” today at the Marian Sutherland Kirby Library!
