(West Palm Beach, FL) – Looking to curl up with someone new for an exciting night? The Mandel Public Library of West Palm Beach can help you with that!
How about a blind date…with a book?
Running through April 12, the library will have 150 books ready to be taken home as part of its new “Hook Up with a Book” program. So what’s the catch, you ask?
All the books will be wrapped and decorated with no visible information about the title or author. You pick a book based on nothing but a three word description of the subject, and you take it home!
You don’t get to unwrap your “date” until you’ve checked it out.
Once you’ve read your book, bring it back and fill out a “rate your date” form for a chance to win a prize.
The library wants to know if your “date” was “hot or not!”
The Hook Up with a Book program is intended to get readers out of their usual comfort zone and read something they normally wouldn’t pick up off the shelves.
