No awkward questions, no forced conversation, no judgmental looks, no need to call. Just have a blind date with a BOOK!

Sure, it might turn out to be a dud OR it could be the diamond in the rough you wouldn’t have given a chance otherwise. There’s no knowing until you check it out! How will it end?

Pick from any one of our decorated books in the Library Lobby for the month of February. 

(Don’t worry if you don’t like it. You can just bring it back and nobody’s feelings will be hurt.)
