Library Lovers Month Book Display"Enthralling, intelligent, charming romance seeks librarian-loving, art-appreciating reader for a long-term rendezvous."

"Gin-loving, native 1920s New Yorker and lover of lavish parties seeking same for hijinks and highballs."

Valentines Day may be over but that doesn't mean you can't find something new to fall in love with.  Stop by the library and go on a blind date with a book. Read the personal ads of each of these books and pick the one that sounds like a match for you.

The catch? You can't unwrap your book until after you've checked it out.

So be adventurous and maybe find your new literary love.

SeraphinaDragons, powerful creatures with mathematical minds, are able to take human form to interact with people; they reject all emotions as weakness, to the point of excising them from their brains.
