Love in the Stacks: Literary Speed Dating @ North

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Cupid invites bookloving singles in their 20s and 30s to gather in the meeting room for snacks and chance encounters.

Bring a book you loved, hated, or just recently read and be prepared to chat about it with a (charming? lovely?) stranger – but only for a few minutes.

Space is limited!

Call the library (510-981-6520) or come in to sign up and learn more about this literary matchmaking event.
