Every Valentine’s Day at the Campus Library, our wonderful Student Circulation employees put together a display called “Blind Date With a Book.” Each book is wrapped up so that patrons cannot see the title; this way, everyone must choose a book based only on the blurb written on the front.
The display was a huge success! 19 of the 28 books had found a date, and they seemed to have gone well!
If you missed this year’s blind date opportunity, don’t worry! Even though it won’t necessarily be a blind date, we do have a large number of books to choose from in our Recreational Reading Collection. Our collection can be found in two places on the first floor:
Children / middle reader’s books: head immediately around the left when you come in the front door, adjacent to our magazines.
Fiction / non-fiction / comic / audiobooks: head straight when you come in the front door and look to the wall on the right, adjacent to our open reserves.
The “Blind Date with a Book” display can be found in the lobby of the library every February. We hope you join us next Valentine’s Day!
