Blind date with a Banned Book starts February 22 at the Library and runs all week. Everyone is invited to take out a wrapped banned book and then to discuss/challenge the decision for the book being banned either on our website at www.delialibrary.ca or on the little post it notes in the library. Sounds like a more interesting blind date than the usual.
