holiday_heart1 10:00 AM  -  5:00 PM Blind Date with a Book! Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact: Kim Christensen    610-583-0593   teens@ridleylibrary.org
   

~~Don’t judge a book by its cover!
Throughout the month of February, The Ridley Township Public Library would like to “fix you up” on a blind date!  No, we're not introducing a new dating service at the library, but we are encouraging you to enjoy a blind date with a book. We have selected a variety of books and wrapped them up in “mysterious” brown paper, so that you won’t know the identity of your blind date until you get them home.
You can find the Blind Date with a Book display in the downstairs library.  Books are appropriate for adults and young adults (grades 6-12).
The Blind Date Books are all fiction titles with a blend of genres and writing styles. Each wrapped book has a “personal ad” attached to it, and if you like what you “see,” check the book out, take it home and unwrap it, and then spend some time getting to know your date.
Perhaps you will find the book of your dreams! However, if you find the book not to your liking, simply return it to the library with no hurt feelings.
If you happen to check out one of our Blind Date Books, fill out the “Rate your Date” slip and turn it in at the Circulation Desk to let us know how the “date” went.  All slips will be entered into a drawing to win a $50 Amazon.com gift card!  Drawing will take place March 14th, 2016.

Ms Lisa will read a story to the kids and then incorporate different yoga poses that relate to the book! There are breathing techniques, balancing games, and so many benefits your kids will take from the class! For preschoolers (ages 3-6).
