Blind Date with a Book

Teen Valentine's Day Bash

Thursday, Feb. 11, 2016, 3:30 p.m.

Make a personalized valentine or go on a Blind Date with a Book at our Valentine's Day Bash in the Afterschool Lounge. We'll have glitter, paper, and plenty of lace for you to make a one-of-a-kind valentine for the special someone (or someones) in your life. They say you shouldn't judge a book by its cover. Put the theory to the test by selecting a YA book to check out based on its description alone. Who knows? You just might fall in love.
