This Library Lets You Go on Blind Dates With Books

The phrase “Never judge a book by its cover” is pretty common, but people quite literally still do it when checking out books, but this new game at Roanoke County Public Library will make you think a little differently!

To play, all you have to do is grab a book from a special little table in the library. All of these books are wrapped up in special wrapping paper. The only information that you are given is a small little blurb on the front that describes the genre that you are reading. You aren’t allowed to unwrap the book until after you check it out.

Billed as a “blind date”, the library then gives you a sheet to fill out once you return the book titled ‘Rate Your Date’. You can answer questions based on how your “date” went, whether or not it was a “good match” as well as rate your date with a number of hearts.

This new game arrives just in time for Valentine’s Day, so if you’re looking for something intimate this holiday, there’s nothing more heartwarming than a good book.
