Looking for a great read? Stop by the Santa Monica Public Library during the month of July and check out the Blind Date with a Book display in the Main Library lobby, 601 Santa Monica Blvd. The display features selected titles wrapped in plain paper with a few descriptive lines on the front of each book. In addition to adding a little mystery and fun into the book selection process, the display encourages discovery of new authors and genres.
Blind Date with a Book is part of the Library‚Äôs second annual Adult Summer Reading Program; this year‚Äôs theme is Literary Elements. Children and teens have long enjoyed the fun and benefits of the Summer Reading Program and the Library is delighted to offer all members of the family a summer reading experience. Adults are invited to visit the Library for a wide variety of related programs including author talks, book discussions, and film screenings. Pick up a Literary Elements form at any Santa Monica Public Library and turn in the completed form by August 13 to be eligible to win prizes for your summer reading activities. The Adult Summer Reading program is made possible through the generous support from the Friends of the Santa Monica Public Library and The Broad Stage.
