This month at my local library, you can go on a blind date with a book.
Valentine’s Day has come and gone, but if you’re still looking for love, you can get “set up” with a mystery date at the library. Patrons have the option to pick up a wrapped book at the main desk and they won’t know the “identity” of their book until they get home.
Just like with any blind date, you won’t know anything about your date until you “get to know them,” so pull up a chair, pour yourself a cup of tea and crack open your mystery book to find out if it’s the one for you!
Is this a neat way to discover new books or what? Has your library done this or something similar before? Have you tried it? Let me know in the comments. If you’ll excuse me, I’m off to the library for a date…
