National Library Week at Ross Library
LOCK HAVEN - For National Library Week, today through April 20, the Ross Library will be offering "Blind Date With A Book."
Books will be placed on display and patrons may choose one and check it out. The books will be wrapped in paper so the contents are a surprise. Each book will have a few words describing it, such as "suspense" or "sci-fi," but no indication as to the author or plot.
Patrons may check out a book, take it home and unwrap it, and see what they have. This will be a way to discover a new title or author, and try new things.
For more information, contact the library at 748-3321, email ross13@ross library.org, or stop by the library at 232 W. Main St.
The Annie Halenbake Ross Library is a member of the PA Forward Initiative and the Clinton County United Way.
