Do you like surprises? Would you like help deciding what to read next? Are you distracted by cover art that inaccurately portrays the content of a book? The LRC ambassadors decided to help with the decision and set staff and students up with a date. Go on a Blind Date with a book!
In a Christmas themed twist, the LRC is lending novels that are completely wrapped in Christmas paper. A few vague words are the only hint to what lies within. "It gives students and staff a chance to try something different perhaps choosing an author or genre that they would usually dismiss” said Alison Baker LRC Manager." No one knows what they are getting – it is a proper lucky-dip experience".
Remi a year 13 student added "The blind dates allow us to select a book based on its genre but without any negative misconceptions of what it's like, it can be a whole different experience to reading, and one that should not be missed out on."
Kayleigh, one of the resource ambassadors who helped to create the display explains "you never know you may just find your perfect match, or maybe even your worst enemy...? Who knows? Certainly not you! Come and collect your new companion from the LRC today to treasure over Christmas!"
