Are you looking for the perfect date this Valentine’s Season?

Tired of looking for love in all the wrong places?

Are you searching for romance, adventure, a good laugh, a thrill or an out of this world fantasy?

Well, the Wheeler Memorial Library in Orange has all that and more just waiting to be uncovered!

Beginning Monday, January 27 and running through Friday, February 28, the library will be challenging patrons to take a chance and go on a Blind Date with a Book!

The event will pair up library patrons with coyly wrapped books to disguise their covers so you won't know the genre, author or title. All the books chosen have been carefully selected by library staff, so you know that they are deserving of your attention. But, like any blind date, there’s an element of risk, but who knows, it could spark a lifelong love affair with a new author.

You can even "Rate Your Date" with none of the usual awkwardness or hurt feelings. The library wants to hear all the sordid details, so each time you read a book, fill out the “Rate Your Date” Bookmark located inside your chosen book and earn a chance to win a “Perfect Date” Gift Basket donated by the Friends of the Orange Public Libraries!

So put on some soft music, light a candle, and experience your best blind date ever! Expand your horizons! Step out of your comfort zone! Try something unfamiliar and off your beaten path. It's about time, isn’t it?
