A “Blind date” with a book

“There are worse crimes than burning books. One of them is not reading them.” Ray Bradbury

The Cawse Library has been a buzz of activity again this week as our Library monitors created a display in celebration of Black History month by creating a “Blind date with a book”. This display focuses on the books of black authors. The content of these books range from black culture and history, to empowering stories, covering all sorts of genres such as sport, autobiographies, historical fiction, novels and much more.

A ‘Blind date with a book’ means that all the books on display are wrapped in brown paper and given short one sentence descriptions which will allow the reader
to decide on which book to take. The idea is to create an exciting reading experience which does not allow you to know the title of the book, and it also removes
the bias created by the appearance of the dust cover. College boys and staff alike are invited to visit the displayin order to check out a book. If in doubt, please ask one of the librarians to help you, and if you have any further questions please direct them to Mrs Jamieson, Ms Libi, Liam McNaughton and John Marshall.
