Find the book of your dreams at the Invermere library

Lonely for a book? The Invermere Public Library is holding its first ever speed dating event.

 

Find the book of your dreams at the Invermere Public Library’s first ever Literacy Speed Dating event on Wednesday, February 11th at 7:00 p.m.

This free event caters to literacy lovers of all types who are looking for a new book list to swoon over. On the evening of the event each participant should bring at least one book recommendation that represents themselves. Perhaps you adore the author, or the protagonist is your hero, or you just simply love the book. It is not necessary to bring a physical copy of the title, just the information will suffice.

In classic speed dating fashion, participants will quickly swap recommendations with each other in three minutes before moving on to the next person. Woo others with the juicy details of your selection and soak up the recommendations that other readers lust over.  Everyone will be given a log to write down and categorize the recommendations in. You can decide whether a book sounds like a dud or deserves a second date.

Everyone is welcome to this event, whether single or not! It is perfect for book clubs and people looking for new reading content. So come share your love for reading with your community, just in time for Valentine’s Day. Please register in advance by contacting the Library at 250-342-6416.
