    We hand-picked books that we think you might love.

    They’re not romance novels, by the way.

    "You just might LOVE it!"

    Come in and browse our brand new Blind Date with a Book display!  This one is adult titles, but teen books will be on the way soon.

    • Take a chance!
    • Check out a book just based on it’s profile, and you might discover a new (or old) favorite
    • Don’t unwrap the book until you get home
    • If it’s not the book for you, you can always return it and try again — no one’s feelings will be hurt!

    I love the hearts! I’ve always wanted a book to say TEXT ME.

    Inspired by Worthington Libraries: Blind Date with a Book!

    We started with ~40 books. Two hours later, all but four had found homes with library patrons (sorry, Flush, Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, Persepolis, and The Things They Carried, they don’t know what they’re missing).

    Now, to send forth a new fleet of exciting books into student arms. Whew!

    Last day of blind date with a book reblogs. Probably. Maybe.

One of our patrons is going on a blind date with a book! She got House of Mirth by Edith Wharton.
This was posted with her approval, of course.

WHAT A GREAT BLIND DATE!

    Joining in on the “Blind Date With a Book” library trend, I spent all day putting this up at my library. I wrote up personal ads for all of the books as a bit of a description and wrapped them up. So far they’re a hit!

    You thought it was over? It’s not over.

Blind Date With A Book
What a fun idea from the Clintonville Public Library in Clintonville, Wisconsin!

Browse through the personal ads and check out one that catches your eye! You won’t know the author or title, but you might make a connection with a new author that will turn into a long-term relationship!


If you thought I was going to stop reblogging Blind Date with a Book displays, YOU WERE WRONG.

    My “Blind Date with a Book” displays for our library. Adult and YA titles. Take home a book, see how you click!

    I love all the other librarians that inspired this.

    All blind dates all the time!

  12. laurenthelibrarian:

    Created a Blind Date with a Book display at my library! Basically, patrons can choose any book they’d like to check out based on the book’s dating profile. (Yes, we created individual Match.com-type dating profiles for each book). They won’t know what the book is until they check it out! 

    Go on all the blind dates!

Blind date with a book display. I came up with date-y questions and then answered them like the characters to give a little hint for each book.

Swooning.
