WINCHENDON — Take a chance on love with the Beals Memorial Library’s book bundles. Bring home a bundle of books without knowing the titles or authors for a fun Valentine’s surprise. Readers of all ages are welcome to participate in this event.

Beginning on Tuesday, Jan. 19 and continuing through Feb. 11, the library will be hosting Blind Date with a Bundle. Combining their new Beals Bundles program with their annual Blind Date with a Book event, the library’s staff will be playing matchmakers for their patrons, pairing them with expertly built bundles of three books. Patrons choose the reading level and genre, but the titles and authors are a mystery until you open your bundle bag.

After your date with your bundle, the library wants to know all the juicy details! Each bundle comes with a “Rate Your Dates” postcard that patrons can fill out and submit to the library, or enter virtually on Beanstack at All patrons who log a book will be entered for a chance to win a Valentine’s Day themed gift basket. The winner of the event will be announced on Friday, Feb. 12.

The Beals Memorial Library is located at 50 Pleasant St. in Winchendon. Visit or call the library at 978-297-0300 for more information or to join this event.
