Spreading the love for books

Students are feeling the love for books after their school librarian masterminded a Valentine’s Day launch of ‘Blind Date with a Book’, an exciting and fun initiative to develop their interest in reading.

‘Blind Date with a Book’ is an interactive and enjoyable way to tempt students to read a selection of books, with just a hint of what’s inside.  The books are wrapped in brown paper with only a brief description on the tag – the premise is that ‘you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover!’  After choosing their books, the students can unwrap them but they mustn’t be put off by their first impression. They are encouraged to give their book a chance as it may be a slow burner.
