Blind date with a book at Polk County Public Library

Published 10:00 pm Monday, January 26, 2015

Are you up for a mysterious rendezvous this Valentine’s Day? During the first half of February, Polk County Public Library wants to “fix you up” with a blind date! The library will select a variety of books and wrap them all up so you won’t know the identity of your blind date until you get it home.

Will it be fiction or non-fiction? Funny, informative, a mystery, romance? Hopefully you will end up with a great new read that you wouldn’t have chosen yourself. So, stop by the Main Library in Columbus anytime between Feb. 1 and 14, and who knows, you might get lucky… If not in love, then literature perhaps?

Polk County Public Library has a Main Library in Columbus and a branch in Saluda, as well as a bookmobile that travels throughout Polk County. PCPL offers books, movies, music, audiobooks, and downloadable eBooks and audiobooks, as well as public computers and wireless internet access. PCPL offers regularly scheduled programs for people of all ages. To learn more, visit
