Blind Date with a Book

Zina Hirmiz, co-op librarian

No “swiping right” this Valentine’s Day! Leddy Library is bringing back Blind Date with a Book.

The Leddy team has carefully selected and wrapped eligible books who will be waiting patiently for their special readers starting today.

“The initiative mimics the concept of blind date and offers a sense of mystery,” says co-op librarian Zina Hirmiz, who helped select this year’s bachelor books. “Readers won’t know the identity of the book until it has been checked out and unwrapped.”

The eligible books will be on display across from the information desk on the main floor of the Leddy Library through Saturday, Feb. 15. The Windsor Public Library’s bookmobile will also offer a selection of “blind dates” when it visits the campus on Wednesday, Feb. 12.

“Take a chance,” Hirmiz says. “Maybe you’ll meet your next favourite book!”
