This February at our Main Library the teens are doing a “blind date with a book” display.Our TAB was wildly enthusiastic about choosing titles and creating the descriptions.

Each number corresponds to a “book bachelor”: Mystery, Romance, or Sci-fi/Fantasy.
The player must choose a book from that genre to check out and “take on a date.” That’s it!
Here are some of the printables for you to use (click on the first two images below to get a ledger-sized jpeg for your own use – the other two are letter-sized pdfs).
The “bachelor descriptions” being suspended from the ceiling was a last-minute decision.
And here’s their fun take on this popular display: When discussing this display with her, I had originally been planning to do it with our adults as well.
However, the more I thought of the time and logistics involved, I went in a different (easier) direction.I have a lot of other higher-priority things I need to get prepped and done for February. Before I go much further, I have to thank Michael at the Main Library for compiling all of the books – it saved me a huge amount of time.He also made very thoughtful and diverse selections that I truly appreciate. The patron picks a number (1-3) out of the yellow bowl.We haven’t really done anything quite like that and I thought it’d be eye-catching as well as give easier access to the displayed books.Plus they’re really eye-catching since they’re in a drafty part of the library, and therefore nicely twirl.Elevating the sign was also last minute and I will be changing it.
