This January I started a new gig as a librarian assistant at a local junior high. The first big display I was able to do was one for Valentine’s Day. I have seen Pinterest posts about bookstores and public libraries doing Blind Date with a Book events so I decided that is what we should do too.
I had my library aides each pick a book, wrap it, and write a brief synopsis on the front.
The first morning the books were available, 8 of the 12 were checked out! I was ecstatic! I immediately begin wrapping more books.
Overall, we wrapped 39 books and all but 4 were checked out. The kids, mostly young ladies, were absolutely loving it. I had 4 girls fill out the “Rate your Date” card.
Overall, it was a blast and something that I plan to do in the future.
