In February, the Gloversville Middle School Library held a “Blind Date with a Book Contest” encouraging students to read from a selection of “mystery titles.”
Students selected books for the contest and then wrapped them in wrapping paper so the titles would be a surprise to the readers participating in the contest.
After selecting a mystery title, students read the book and filled out a card to rate their “Blind Date Book” by answering questions about the book. Students returned the cards to be entered in a Valentine’s Day Raffle. Many students read several books for the contest.
A name was randomly chosen from the entries, and the winner was eighth grader Sara Abdalla. She won a gift bag that included a book and candy.
Congratulations to Sara and all those students who participated in the Blind Date With A Book Contest.
