Go on a date with a mystery book and see if it's a love connection!

Books offered to all ages: Adult, teen, and children. Head to the respective area, grab a book with a description that sounds intriguing, and check it out. We ask that patrons both adult and youth take 1 book per person to start with. When you're finished with that one, come get another! That way everyone has a chance to go on a (hopefully) fun date!

For the adults, grab a review sheet from your table, and turn it in by February 17th to the ballot box at the table. We'll have a drawing where one patron will when a mystery prize!
