Blind Date with a Book

This year for Valentine’s Day, otherwise known as Single Awareness Day, our librarian Mrs. Redman decided to set up people on Blind Dates with books. Valentine’s Day’s an exciting day for those who have a date or a valentine, but for people who don’t have any plans, cuddling up with a mug of hot chocolate and a good book can be the best way to spend the day. The excitement from the student body that participated in this was very contagious. A student said, “ I was so excited when I walked in the library and saw that it was the blind dates with books. I’ve really been looking forward to it! It literally made my whole day.” Each book was individually wrapped in brown paper with a cute ribbon and a heart with a quote from the book attached. The quotes on the book pulled the attention of many people who chose books. As they ripped open the wrapping on the book there was a range of different emotions that went through their faces. There was some surprised looks, some people put the book back discovering that they didn’t want it. Others were excited to jump into a new story, one they may have never considered before then. This was such a great fun way for everyone to get into Valentine’s day spirit. Hopefully it becomes a tradition here at PHS. A big thanks to everyone who participated and especially to Mrs. Redman who created such a fun activity for our student body.
