My director decided for the month of February to create a "Blind Date with a Book" display upstairs in the adult area. All staff are to pick five books and wrap them up, and write the barcode on the outside. I thought it would be fun to do something similar with the kids books downstairs!
"Check out a wrapped book, take
it home, and unwrap it. Show it your favorite spots to read. Get
to know each other. If you hit it off, introduce it to your friends!
There won’t be any awkward
feelings if you don’t like your date, but you might find the match of your literary dreams!"
"Fill out the “Rate Your Date” card
inside the book, and turn it in by
March 1 to be entered to win a prize!"
Lots of ideas for this display were found on Pinterest.
Edited to add: Two days after putting up this display, 14 of my 16 books are already gone... Guess I have to find some more!!!
