Friends of Portage Library to offer Blind Date Books; library to host Poetry Reading Feb. 14

HOUGHTON -- This Valentine's Day Friends of the Portage Lake District Library warmly invite library patrons to go on a blind date with a book! The library will also host a Poetry Reading on Friday, Feb. 14.

Go on a "blind date" with a book

Specially chosen library books have been wrapped with paper and decorated by participants in the library’s Young Adult Book Group. With titles and authors’ names covered up, patrons will not know until after they have checked the books out what they have chosen. Hopefully, they will enjoy the book’s "company."

"It’s all good fun," said Friends of the Library President Sandra Hubscher, "and is intended to spice up our literary lives."

Patrons can look for the Blind Date Books beginning on Wednesday, Feb. 12.

Portage Library to host Community Poetry Reading Feb. 14

The Portage Lake District Library invites everyone to gather around the library’s fireplace for a Community Poetry Reading at 6 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 14. Lovers of poetry are invited to read, listen, and enjoy the atmosphere.

Library programs are free and open to all. For more information, please call the library at 482-4570 or visit www.pldl.org.
