Libraries Offer Free, Pre-paid Mailers for Residents
Are you looking to find the book of your dreams? Colfax, Garfield, and Rosalia Libraries are making that possible through WCL’s 5th annual “Blind Date with a Book,” available during February.
To go on a “blind date with a book,” simply browse the display of wrapped up books in the library windows, read the hints, choose your favorite, checkout, unwrap and enjoy. If you’re not sure which to pick, call or email us and a librarian will set you up.
All Colfax participants get a chance at a romantic date, generously donated by Pairings Fine Art & Wine. Garfield blind daters are entered to win a gift certificate from Grumpy’s. Readers in Rosalia will go into a raffle for a free pizza from Whole in the Wall.
With a rating scale of “a major dud” to “red hot,” be sure return the Rate Your Date slip to your library’s book drop, which serves as your entry into these respective drawings.
To sweeten the deal, the first participants will also receive a Valentine’s treat.
*Rosalia’s program ends on February 13th.
If you’re ready to fall in love this February, contact your library for more details.
