Speed Dating @ Your Library

Knock-me-over-with-a-feather time. (Oh, the places you'll go with Twitter.)

What's curious about Butte's event is its lack of pretense. There's no mention of the need to share a favorite book.

The Chula Vista Public Library in California takes a more "programmatic" approach to speed dating. It's book-oriented.

to February 5 Sign On San Diego post, "Literary speed dating on the books at library".

Excerpt: Adults 21 and older will have an opportunity to meet novel friends or a new love during the Literary Speed Dating evening. In a classic speed-dating style, participants will have five minutes with each partner to talk about their favorite books. The library, which is normally closed on Fridays, is open only for this special occasion.
