February is Library Lover's Month and to celebrate, HS/MS Library Manager Mrs. Amanda Noblit has created a Blind Date with a Book.display that has proven to be a literary matchmaker for numerous Southern Columbia students! According to Mrs. Noblit, the books on display are decorated with wrapping paper, hiding the book’s title and author. The wrap makes what the students check out a complete mystery! The books represent a variety of genres, providing opportunities for "students to explore new genres and writing styles" with the hope of turning them on to new authors, series, and/or genres. Students are given the chance to rate their "dates" after returning the book to the library. Through the first two weeks of February over 200 books in the Blind Date display have been checked out, servng as evidence the initiative has students excited about visiting the library and reading!  Blind Date with a Book will continue through the end of February.
