The Abbot Public Library is getting in the Valentine’s Day spirit next month, with an event set for Feb. 15 that seeks to pair readers and books.

Between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. on Feb. 15, residents can stop by the library to go on a blind date with a book. Library books of various genres will be wrapped with a short description to help readers get acquainted with them and see if one piques their interest.

Readers can take their date straight home, or stick around for a craft. Light refreshments will also be served.

This program is sponsored by the Marblehead Council on Aging and the Friends of Abbot Public Library.
