An evening with Harry Potter

. February 1, 2013.

Speed dating takes on a whole new meaning at the Findlay Hancock County Public Library during their Teen Book Swap and Speed Date on Tuesday, February 26. The event, developed by the library's children's
associate and young adult staff representative Erin Gillespie, allows teens in grades six through 12 to discover cool new reads and to socialize at the same time. Teens will have 30 seconds to leaf through a book, then jot down their opinion of the candidate, anything from "this book was my soulmate" to "I never want to see this book again." It's also a perfect chance to swap novels a teen has already read for something new. At the end of the session, teens have the opportunity to "date," or check out, the books that captured their attention — only time will tell how long their relationships will last.

Free. 6:30-7:30pm. For more information, contact Gillespie at 419-422-1712 or visit
