Find the Book of Your Dreams this Valentine's Day!
It's no secret that we have a thing for books here at the Jacksonville Public Library. In fact, we absolutely love them! That's why this Valentine's Day, we want to help our fellow book lovers find a title worth falling for. Go on a blind date with a book in this interactive blog!
Take a Chance on a Blind Date with a Book
You've most likely heard of blind dates with books before, as it's become a favorite display for libraries and book stores around the world. It eliminates the temptation to judge a book by its cover and can be an exciting way to discover new titles in a genre you love.
A blind date with a book typically requires you to physically be at a participating location, or have the mystery book shipped to the library location or your choice. So we put our own spin on the idea, allowing you to go on a blind date with a book from anywhere, on any device!
How to Find Your *Digital* Dream Date
Below are seven "wrapped books" labeled with the following genres: horror, romance, mystery, science fiction, historical fiction, fantasy and nonfiction. Under each book, you will find a button labeled with the corresponding genre. Each button takes you to a hand-selected title in our catalog. Not crazy about your first match? Go back and try your genre again! Every button has ten possible books it could link to at random.
