    Blind Date with a Book (Feb. 11-15, 2019)

    Looking to heat things up this winter? Are you craving a little intrigue, mystery, action, thrills or romance? Visit our Cambridge, Doon or Waterloo Library locations between February 11 to 15, 2019 to go on a "blind date" with a book.

    Our Libraries will feature a display of pink and red wrapped books - each containing a synopsis of what it's about without giving away the title, author or cover. You then decide which book you would like to checkout for a "date".

    Human Library Event (Feb. 14, 2019 | Doon)

    Ready to go on a blind date with a live book? Student Engagement and the Library are hosting their eighth annual Human Library event at Conestoga.

    Where: Learning Lab, Library Services (Doon Campus)

    When: Thursday, February 14, 2019 from 10am-4pm

    What/Who: The Human Books for the event are volunteers from the Conestoga and regional community that are available to be "checked out" for 15 minutes at a time by interested students, faculty and staff wanting to ask questions and learn more information first-hand about topics as being gender variant, living with a physical disability and more...

    How: Register via the Co-Curricular Record (CCR) or visit the Library on February 14 to register at the event's reception table.

    Why: Don't judge a book by its cover - everyone has a story to share to help break stereotypes, challenge assumptions, celebrate differences and enhance knowledge.
