Everyone has those awkward first date memories, awkward first-date silences, embarrassing questions asked, you know the drill. However, the IMC has been sponsoring the “Blind Date with a Book” promotion for the month of February.   There will be a display of wrapped books at the entrance to the IMC that will only have hints on them as to what they’re about. The IMC staff has chosen some of their personal favorites for your possible dates. Simply select a book and check it out, unwrap it when you get home and read!  Your date might be mysterious, or suspenseful, or romantic, who knows?  And if it doesn’t work out…well, just drop it off in the book drop. Use the Rate Your Date card in the front pocket of the book to enter the drawing for a prize. The drawing will be held on February 27th at 3:00 and two winners will be announced.
