February Events @ Your Library

February 1-29

Blind Date with a Book (and a chance to win a book!)

Don’t judge a book by its cover!

1)Choose one of the wrapped books from the display based on just a few details.

2) Don’t unwrap the book until you get home.

3) Inside every wrapped book is a short  “Rate Your Date” form. Fill it out and return it to          the library for a chance to win a new book by a popular author!

4) Try another blind date with a book!


Friday, February 12 1:00-3:00

What activities would you like to see at the library?

The weather is cooling off and it’s time to start thinking about cozy indoor activities. Here at the library, we’d like to start hosting more events for adults in our sunny reading area.
What are some activities you enjoy?
Board games (chess, Scrabble, etc)?
Card games?
Something else?
We’d like to host activities for men and women.
And there might even be free coffee!
