Wrapped Up in Books for Valentine’s

There’s no need to worry about being alone this Valentine’s Day when you’ve got a great book. Stop by the library to pick up a literary companion today!

Central Library and Gordon Avenue Library are inviting kids to pick out a surprise book wrapped up in paper that piques their interest in reading. At Central, books can be picked out by taking a sneak peek at their first line, while at Gordon Avenue the books are wrapped up as “book buddies” with fun faces from which to choose.

Nelson Memorial Library’s Blind Date With a Book Display

At Nelson Memorial Library, teens and adults can go on a “blind date with a book.” The eligible books are wrapped up and have basic details on the plot and setting, and you get to pick which you think will be the most compatible with your reading habits.

These displays will be up until the end of February. Choose a book, check it out, unwrap it at home, and hopefully you’ll be surprised and delighted by the book you got. If you enjoy your experience, be sure to let your librarians know! Feel free to post to social media with #jmrlreads to share which book you got.
