Visit the Young Adult Section at Kailua-Kona Public Library during the month of February. Browse the covers of the wrapped books on the Blind Date with a Book shelving cart, and choose one that appeals to you. A Blind Date book may be unwrapped only after you borrow it. Like going on a blind date, you won’t know much about your “new partner,” except for a short quote from the book on the front cover. Take a chance and read something outside your “genre comfort-zone!” Each wrapped book has a book review form inside. After reading the book, complete the book review form and turn it in by Feb. 28 to enter to win a $25. Regal Theater gift card! See rules on the shelving cart for more details. Enjoy your blind dates!
Recommended for teens in Grades 6 to 12.
