Happy Valentine's Day!

Are you stuck in the same old reading rut? Tired of the same old, same old thing? Boy meets girl... girl meets ... vampire, you know. Why not try something new? Have a bind date with... a book!

We know some books are very popular, ahem, we're looking at you Twilight' and 'Harry Potter'. And you too, 'Lemony Snickett' and 'Nancy Drew'. But there are lots, and lots of talented authors and enthralling books you guys just don't seem to see...

So, this week, the library has picked out some amazing books, some older, some brand new, authors and titles that we think you'll really love, once you get to know them. We wrapped them in plain white paper and added a cute heart (because well, it's Valentine's Day!), and then a few words describing the subject matter of the book- things like 'Family Drama, 'Plot Twist', 'Espionage', 'Not your average vampire', 'Sister, Sister', etc. We printed out the books' barcodes and stuck them on as well so that you could use them to scan your choice out!

To take part, all you have to do is, agree to create a 50 word comment, right here, about the book you got. I'm looking forward to reading your reactions to the book that you decide to 'date.' If you loved it, that's great. And if you don't.? Just return it, no awkward questions and we promise, its feelings won't be hurt. So come on in, we're looking out for you, but hurry, we've loaned 55 books in 1 hour... that table's getting empty!
