Love Story Seeking Library Reader

Stratford Library is getting into the dating business - blind dating! For the month of February we'll be hosting Blind Date With a Book. We've gift wrapped several love stories and romances and have hidden all the information about the book except for the category. We invite you to check out one of these books, take your "date" home, unwrap it, and settle in for a romantic read. Perhaps you'll discover a new author or genre that you like! Return the book with a Rate-a-Date bookmark filled out and be entered into a drawing for a date for two at Baytown's Premiere Cinema.

Book Club Visits Olive Street

The book club is headed to Robyn Carr's The House on Olive Street to read about the lives of four writers who are brought together by the death of a close friend. Sable: her bestselling novels have made her a star, but the woman who has everything, in fact, has nothing but a past she is desperate to hide. Elly: the intellectual who has hidden herself within the walls of academia, afraid to admit she is tired of being alone.
