Bennington Free Library found a hot idea on Pinterest, currently amusing borrowers and staff alike. Offer pre-wrapped books for adults and children (different displays) to take home and “date.” Not sure how the front desk will shoot the barcode– but what a fun idea for Valentine’s Day!
Text on the sign reads “Celebrate your love of reading by choosing any book from this display. (No peeking.) We’ll check it out to you still wrapped, so you won’t know what you have until you get home!”
The adult titles have handwritten notes on the paper: “TAKE ME HOME! I’m a short story collection by a famous English author.”
