Go on a ‘blind date’ with a twist at city library

THERE will be blind dates of a different kind at Tamworth Regional Library today to celebrate the most romantic day of the year.

Valentine’s Day has been renamed Library Lovers’ Day to thank those clients who love and support their local service.

Bookmarks and stickers will be given away and, for something a bit different, a variety of books will be wrapped up and displayed for borrowing in a “blind-date” twist.

The library’s Amanda Bourke said it was designed to tempt clients to choose a book that may be something they wouldn’t ordinarily pick up.

If the date went well, presumably it could mark the beginning of a beautiful relationship with a whole new literary genre.

The day is being celebrated at libraries everywhere.

Yesterday Tamworth’s Kirsty Brown and her daughter, Emily, got a sneak peak at what’s planned for Tamworth Regional Library today.
