Blind Date With A Book

Are you ready for your blind date?

January 9th- February 13th

Come in to The Red Rock Public Library to borrow an adult fiction “blind date” book!

Here’s how it works:
Each book is wrapped and has an “opening line” and genre clearly stated on its packaging. Choose one -no peeking yet!- and give it to the librarian for checkout.
You may check out one book at a time
After you’ve checked out the book, unwrap it to officially meet your date. Give the book a chance but if things don’t work out, simply return it. No hard feelings!
Fill out your “Rate the Date” bookmark (included with the book you checked out) and return it with your book for a chance to win a prize!

Make sure to bring in your bookmark to be entered into the draw by February 13th!

Prize draw will take place on February 14th

This program is for ages 18 and over. Good luck!
