Friday Question #165 - Library Events

It’s #NationalLibraryWeek!

Have you attended any library events recently? What is your favorite library event you’ve attended?

Our library does a ‘blind date’ for the month of February. Where they put a book in a gift bag marked only with its genre. And you get to pick a bag not knowing the book. I’ve got to know a couple of authors that I hadn’t read before. And when you return the book they ask “how was your date?” It’s so fun.


I participate in a lot of library events. Our library system offers such a great variety of activities. I have done a lot of different art classes. For example, I have dyed t-shirts after applying wax to create a picture on it, made a cutting board out of wood slats, made a coaster with acrylic pouring, and made a journal among others. I check out their calendar often. I love the author talks they have too.

I just moved to Minneapolis, so I’m excited to get to know my new library a little better. The best part is, it’s just around the block!

I’m finding that libraries are slowly getting back to hosting author events in person. Often, they still stick with online events, as if they’re being cautious about COVID. But a library in another city not far from me is having an in-person event later this week with Deborah Goodrich Royce, author of REEF ROAD. So I’ll be attending that.

The last event I attended at my own library in Romeo, Michigan was a speaker talking about President Lincoln.
