Go on a Blind Date with a Book at the MPLibrary

| No Comments

To encourage reading for pleasure and to have some fun during the month of February, the Teen Advisory Board (TAB) of the Metuchen Public Library invites all students in grades 6-12 to:

Go on a Blind Date with a Book!

Here are the Official Dating Rules:

  1. Students are to come into the Metuchen Public Library (480 Middlesex Avenue) between February 1 and February 16 to choose among a number of available books to "take out."  The books are brown-wrapped and carry a unique teaser like "Looking for adventure?" or "Hey! I like the survivor in YOU!" 
  2. Readers are asked not to unwrap their mystery date until they check it out and leave the Library.  
  3. Next comes the date itself! In order to give your mystery book a fair chance, read at least the first 2 chapters, then return it with a brief paper survey (found inside each book) that asks you to "rate your date."
  4. If you and your date get that far, you'll be entered into a contest to win a prize from the Friends of the Metuchen Library.

And who knows? Maybe you'll actually fall in love with an author, a book or an entire series!
