This blind date won't require a fake emergency call from your friends

by Becky C | Feb 13, 2017
It's the day before Valentine's Day and we'd love to set you up on a blind date . . . with a book!  Our Aboite Branch library has selected a variety of books, wrapped them in white paper to conceal all identifying information, and set them out on display. 

Like an online dating profile, each of our potential dates includes a short description -- unlike an online dating profile, the description is from someone who has previously "dated" the book.  And isn't that the kind of information we all wished we'd had at some point?

Uncertain?  Our Grabill Branch library offers a more traditional display.  They've pulled together a variety of books for your browsing pleasure but they have not concealed any book information.

ACPL has 14 locations and each always has a few book displays to highlight different aspects of our collection.  Your number one matchmaker though is the person at the reference desk.  Let us set you up with the perfect book today!

Becky CBecky likes to read … A LOT. When she’s not reading, she likes to pretend that she can garden. Her thumb has no hint of green whatsoever but luckily her plants are forgiving. Her favorite books are The Shannara series by Terry Brooks.
