Speed Date With a Book


Jul 12, 2018
07:00 PM until 08:00 PM


What is the best book you have read so far this summer? We are halfway through OWL Reads! - our second annual adult summer reading program and we want to hear how it’s going.

Get Ready to Speed Date with a Book!

Speed Date with a Book is a fun way for us to share with each other our favorite reads and to hear about new ones.  Bring in the book that was the most fun, affecting, or memorable read of your summer (so far). We will pair participants to chat about the books they chose for one-minute each and then…SWITCH! You will book-talk with the next person down the line, until every reader has shared their book with every participant. You will leave the program inspired and with your mind overflowing with new books to read.


Just in case…Bring your second favorite book along in case there is additional time to share at the end.

Adult Services Librarian Patricia Moore will facilitate the event, and will also be participating. She will share her favorite books, share book lists ideas, and bring multiple copies of popular titles.

We want you to be successful in the summer reading challenge and we will do all we can to make sure you have fun and reach your summer reading goal!

Space is limited. Registration is required and can be done by calling 860-567-8030 or visiting and clicking on Events/Adult Events.
