“Blind Date with a Book” Event for Adults – Friday 5th May 19:30

You’re Invited!

Open to all CEL members.
How “Blind Date with a Book” works:
  1. Bring a book you’re ready to part with, but wrap it up so no one can tell what it is.
  2. Include a few clues to give everyone a sense of what it is without unveiling the title, author, or cover.
  3. At the event, everyone will select a book and go home with a new read!
Please RSVP to me via email so we know how many people to expect. See you on May 5!


PS Don’t forget this Saturday morning from 10-12 is our annual Spring Clean at the library. We would appreciate all the help we can get! There will be coffee and donuts! 🧼🪣🧹🧽☕️🍩☕️🍩
