Stop by the Media Center now through February 13 to participate in "Blind Date with a Book."  We match you with an unknown gift-wrapped book that you know very little about.  After you check the book out, we send you off with a kiss.  Then you take your book on a blind date by choosing to meet with and read it, and give it a chance to make an impression.  Then you decide....is it a love connection?  Or is your blind date a dud?  Just for giving it a chance, you get your name in a drawing for a heart-shaped box of chocolates..  Stop by the Media Center and meet your blind date!
