If the answer to all three of those questions is ‘yes,’ then the Arlington Public Library has just the event for you this weekend.
On Sunday evening, the Shirlington Branch Library (4200 Campbell Avenue) will be hosting the library’s first-ever ‘Book Dating’ event. Library officials are billing the event as a “novel” way to help the literary-minded find love.
To participate, think about a couple of books you’d like to share: favorites, disappointments, readings-in-progress, etc. Bring them from home or pick them up at the library. Then head over to the event (from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m.) and library staff will set you up on a series of 3 minute mini-dates with each of the other participants.
There will be “no fines for overdue romances,” library spokesman Peter Golkin noted.
Refreshments will be provided by Ruth’s Chris Steak House.
