Blind Date with a Book

Stop by the library media center any time between now and the end of February and go on a blind date with a book. You will find gift wrapped books of all sizes and shapes.

Books with pink hearts on them will probably be enjoyed by females.
Books with red hearts on them will probably be enjoyed by males.
Books with silver writing on them will be enjoyed by any readers.

The idea is that readers will check out a wrapped book without knowing its title or author or seeing its cover..... a blind date. Maybe you will discover a book, a genre, or an author that you never would have considered prior to your date with that book. Once you finish the book please return it and the "Rate Your Date" form to the library. Students who complete the forms will have their names entered in a drawing for an iTunes gift card or a free book.
