It’s About Trying New Things. Stop into the Media Center starting Feb. 11 to check out a blind date book, take it home, and unwrap it. Show it your favorite spots to read. Get to know each other. If you hit it off, introduce it to your friends! First, a few ground rules…If you take a book and open the package you are committed to reading the book and cannot return it within 24-48 hours, but all books are due within the normal two weeks checkout period. After you’ve had a proper date with your book, return it directly to Mrs. Whitmarsh or Mrs. Neff and receive a Rate Your Date form. We’d love to know if your date was a success or a flop!
