Make a Blind Date With a Book at Central City Public Library

Tired of your same old relationships?  Need something new and exciting?  During the entire month of February stop by the library for a mysterious rendezvous.  We’d like to fix you up with a blind date (with a book of course); after all we are a library! We’ll select a variety of books, wrap them up in plain brown paper (no peeking) and you won’t know the “identity” of your blind date until you get it home.  Will it be fiction or non-fiction, a mystery, biography, or a cookbook?  Funny, heart-breaking or informative?  Sure, you may be disappointed; then again… you may end up really enjoying something you may not otherwise have chosen for yourself.

Each book will have a “Rate Your Date” slip.  If you are so inclined, say whatever you want about your date (even if your date was a dud- don’t worry, its feelings won’t be hurt).  With each slip you return, you can enter a drawing to win dinner for two at the Lincoln Manor Steak House in Central City.  So, be sure to stop by the library anytime between February 1 and 28.  Who knows, you might get lucky; if not in love then perhaps in literature?
