GENEVA – The Geneva Public Library District is currently hosting its “Blind Date a Book” program in an effort to introduce readers to new titles and authors. Selected titles are for teens and adults.

“Dateable” books will be available through Friday, Feb. 28. The blind-date books are located in the library’s fiction room, and the book’s cover will be wrapped in brown paper to conceal the identity of the book. A blind-date book could be about a bold assassin seeking a brave reader; a believer in destiny seeking an explorer with a bad case of wanderlust; a swashbucking romantic seeking someone who is easily seduced; and more.

Patrons will not know which book they are selecting.

Once the blind-date book is read, patrons can fill out an included “Rate Your Date” card, and drop it off at the readers’ advisory desk by Wednesday, March 12. Participants also will be given a chance to win a Graham’s 318 gift card.

The library is located at 127 James St. in Geneva.
