February is just around the corner. That means Valentine’s Day will soon be upon us – a day of romance and love. To celebrate, why not head on over to Caledon Public Library to pick up a ‘Blind Date with a Book’.

What’s a ‘Blind Date with a Book’? Books will be wrapped up with clues pertaining to what’s inside. Without seeing the cover, title or even the author, signing out a book will feel like going on a blind date. You never know what book you might end up signing out… it could be your new literary love! Choose the book with the description that appeals to you most and check it out with your library card.

All books will come with a book review. Rate the book and let us know if it was a match made in heaven! Your name will be entered in a grand prize draw. To make things sweeter this year, some of our Blind Date books will contain Golden Tickets hidden inside. Redeem your Golden Ticket to pick up a prize! Blind Date with a Book is a program that will be running all month long, from February 1st – February 28th.  Check out the display at any Caledon Public Library branch to sign out a book today!

In the meantime, cozy up with these teen romance novels and embrace your love of reading!
