Have a Blind Date Tonight!

Single? In a relationship? “It’s complicated”? No matter! During the entire month of February, you can head to Ashe County Library and have a mysterious assignation … or as many as you like.  In honor of Valentines and Love Your Library Month, the library will “arrange blind dates” upon request.  If you’re up for a rendezvous, all you have to do is check out one of the books on our Blind Date Display. They are all wrapped in brown paper, with decorated covers, offering only a hint to the type of book.  A blind date with a book will never stand you up.  Spend some time getting to know your date. There will be no uncomfortable questions to answer, no awkward lulls in the conversation, no need to put on nice shoes (or even get out of your pajamas). Sure, you might be disappointed; but then again.... you may end up having a great time with something you would otherwise never have ventured to read.  Inside each book you will find a ‘Rate Your Blind Date’ slip: if you’re so inclined, you can say whatever you want about it.  

Even if your date turns out to be a dud, (don’t worry; its feelings won’t be hurt), all is not lost!  With each slip you return, you can enter a raffle. 
One lucky Blind Dater will win a special gift.  Stop by Ashe Library between February 1-28.  You might get lucky; if not in love then perhaps  in   literature. Drawing for raffle will be Friday, March 1at 4:00
