Dear patrons,

No, we haven’t started a new dating service at the library (yet). But we would like to “fix you up” with a book.
Starting Tuesday Jan. 28th, we will have books wrapped up, so you won’t know the identity of your blind date until you get home. We will have a quick personal ad to help you choose your perfect date. You will be able to rate your date and let the community know.
Everyone who comes in and gets a blind-date book will be entered to a raffle to win a real date at the Worthy Burger (in the form of a $30 gift card). One entry per person.
For teenagers, we will have a separate drawing to win a sample of Equal Exchange chocolate bars.
We will have the raffle drawings on Thursday, Feb. 13th at 5pm.

See you soon in the library,


P.S.: This event was made possible thanks to a generous donation from the Worthy Burger located in South Royalton!
