two students sharing a book

Valentine’s Day is approaching and once again the Library is playing matchmaker!  ‘Blind date with a book’ is happening February 13-17 at Dana Porter, Davis Centre, Musagetes and St. Jerome’s libraries.

What is a blind date with a book? Books wrapped in paper come with a ‘personal ad’ containing some clues about what’s inside.  Without knowing what the book looks like, the title or the author, signing out a book is like going on a blind date.  You never know what you might get…it could be your favourite read of the year!
