Loughrea Library Blind Date 1st February to 13th March

Borrowers in Loughrea Library are in for a treat this month as they can participate on a Library Blind Date, tying in with Valentines’ day. Library staff have selected, and covered in newspaper, over 50 books for borrowers to try. The selection includes some classics, staff favourites, borrower recommendations, literary gems and some pot luck. However, the catch is that borrowers have no idea what book they are taking home.

Loughrea staff has imposed a few Dating Rules:
1. Choose a covered book from the selection.
2. Decide if size matters to you.
3. Bring it to the counter to check out.
4. If you have had previous relations with the book and do not want to give it a second change, bring it back and try another date!
5. If you’re feeling adventurous, why not try three or four blind bates?
6.  Join us on Tuesday March 13th from 6 to 7pm to ‘rate my date’ (optional).

The aim of the blind date is to introduce borrowers to a new author, genre, style or theme that they may usually overlook, especially through the haze of bestsellers and new fiction.
