Blind Date with a Book

Blind Date with a Book

No “swiping right” this valentine’s day! Come to Leddy Library and we’ll set you up on a blind date with a book!

The Leddy team has carefully selected and wrapped eligible books who are waiting patiently for their special readers. The identity of the book won’t be revealed until the book has been checked-out and unwrapped.

You can find your "blind date" on the main floor of the Leddy Library from February 11th - 15th.

Take a chance... maybe you'll meet your next favourite book!
