Judging a Book by Its Cover: Speed Dating with Books

speed dating

Are you an avid reader and have exhausted all the books by your favorite authors? Or are you just looking for new book recommendations?  On Wednesday, July 10, come to the Farmington Libraries and try speed dating with books. This event will take place at 7:00 p.m. at the main library at 6 Monteith Drive.

How it works: the librarians will set up tables with books laid out. Each participant will take a seat and have a few minutes with each book to read the description, flip through the pages, study the language, and judge it by its cover. When time is up, each participant will then move to the next book and so on until everyone has had the chance to examine each book. Scorecards will be provided. In the end, you may find a whole new set of authors you had not read before and have met a whole new group of people who share your love of books!

Advanced registration is required for the program. Please register in advance by calling the library at 860-673-6791 or visiting the library’s web site at http://www.farmingtonlibraries.org.

This event is part of the 2013 Adult Summer Reading Program, “One Town, Many Voices,” and is sponsored by the Friends of the Farmington Libraries.

The Farmington Library is part of the Farmington Village Green and Library Association.  If you have special needs to attend library programs, contact the library in advance.
