Go on a Blind Date with a Book
March 3 - March 31, 2015

The New Carlisle Public Library wants to set you up on a blind date….with a book!

We’ll select a variety of books, wrap them up in brown paper, and you won’t know the identity of your blind date until you get it home.  Will it be a mystery, a romance, a Western? 

You’ll find a book pocket and card on the front of your mystery date.  Write in the title and author of the book, along with a quick review.  Make sure to put your contact information on the back. Your completed card will be on display for everyone to see. 

Even if your date turns out to be a dud, all is not lost.  On April 1, 2015, the Library staff will put all completed entries into a prize drawing.  One lucky winner will receive a gift certificate to Texas Roadhouse!
