Coming Soon to Penn State University Libraries: “Blind Date with a Book” (A Month-Long Event)

From PSU Libraries:

Just a few clues and keywords will describe wrapped books during the University Libraries’ “Blind Date with a Book” through the month of February. Shelves in Pattee Library’s Franklin Atrium, as well as several pop-up locations around Penn State’s University Park campus, will be filled with both fiction and non-fiction books available for students to take on a reading date.

Hundreds of titles are available, but books may not be unwrapped until after they are checked out at the lending services desk.

Readers have the opportunity to provide feedback about their “book date” on Twitter at @psulibs.
