Participants will be paired with other singles who are in search of that special someone. Every few minutes, participants will be moved to different “rooms” on Zoom to meet a new person. The hosts will provide ice-breaker questions to allow participants to start conversations.
The library will also be offering a variety of other services for Valentine’s Day including Blind Date with a Book, Valentine’s Gift Bags, and eCards created by the Community Engagement Department.
Blind Date with a Book starts on February 1st. Patrons can search “Blind Date with a Book” on the library’s online catalog or visit the library’s curbside table to see the different genres. For example, if you want to have a date with Sci-Fi, look for “Blind Date with a Book: Out of this World.” Each genre will have a line or two about them such as, “if you like your androids tall, dark and snarky, give me a glance.”
Patrons can purchase Valentine’s Gift Bags by filling out this form:
Each basket costs $10, and there are three types:
- Sweetheart – two monogrammed wine glasses, a movie, candy, a Papa John’s special coupon, and a bag of popcorn.
