As Valentine's Day approaches many will be going on dates, while others prefer a simpler night.

The Drumheller Public Library is bringing back their Blind Date with a Book promotion.

"It's the third year we're doing it. It's been very popular with the community. The library staff pick out a few books that they like, especially and would like to share. We wrap them up in pretty paper and put them out for people to check out," explained Emily Hollingshead, Director of Library Services.

Since the book is wrapped, members won't know what they're getting until they unwrap it at home.

"We have adult books and some YA (young adult) books and some YA books that will probably be in with the adult books because we have staff who would like to share YA books with adults," noted Hollingshead.

The Blind Date with a Book program is on now until Valentine's Day at the Drumheller Public Library.
