Valentines Blind Date with A Book!

February and Valentines Day are coming.  What's your first thought? Mine is chocolate, followed by red and pink heart decorations all over the place.  Some people take this day as an opportunity to profess their love for someone or to show their appreciation of them.  Maybe with diamonds?  Did you know that on Feb. 14, 1972 the Star of Sierra Leone, the world's largest diamond was discovered?  It measured in at 900 carats.  That would make one BIG ring!  Or how about serenading someone with a love song?  I think the best Valentines day song has got to be Chet Bakers version of "My Funny Valentine".  The message is one we'd all like to hear: Stay just the way you are because with you, every day is Valentine's Day. 
    Well at the Mill Pond Library in Kingston we have something new planned for Valentine's Day.  Are you feeling adventurous?    Looking for your next favorite read?  Then try our blind date with a book and "Rate Your Date"!  Select a wrapped book with a pickup line you like (the first line of the story).  Check the book out.  Open it when you get home to start your "blind date".  Tell us how it went with the "Rate Your Date" card that you will find inside the book.  Return the completed card to the box at the circulation desk, after you have finished the book, for your chance to win a prize!  A drawing will be held on March 7th.  Sorry, it won't be diamonds, but maybe chocolates and red and pink hearts!  William Faulkner wrote, " Perhaps they were right in putting love into books, perhaps it could not live anywhere else."  Hope to see you at the library in February for a "blind date!"
