Blind Date With a Book

by on March 16th, 2015

Our first year of playing matchmaker with you and a Blind Date With a Book was so much fun. We set you up with over 200 books in February and loved hearing how 71 of those dates went on your returned Rate Your Date slips. Congratulations to Katharine Thompson, the winner of a box of chocolates courtesy of Aspen Leaf & Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory!

Library staff were interested to see what people thought of their selections, and some of us (ahem, Meredith) might have gotten a little bit competitive about it… You can see the mix of reactions to some of the books I picked here. Not every book was a good match, so we want to thank all the intrepid readers who gave it a try!

If you missed this display, remember that you can step outside of your regular reading routine anytime by taking a book from the Recently Returned shelves or wandering into a section that you might not normally visit. Library staff members are always willing to offer a suggestion, too.

Did you check out a Blind Date book? What did you think? What would you want to see different in next year’s display?

    We loved this idea! Next time, we’d like to have a section with separate ones for kids, Tweens, teens, adults. We had a lot of fun with this and checked out some books we wouldn’t have otherwise found.

    Great idea, Dillon family! We’ll keep that in mind for next February.
