On Valentine’s Day, the students got the chance to hang out with a good book and make a fresh love connection at the first “Book Speed Dating” event in the EIS Learning Resource Center. Within each 5-minute slot, they would choose a new seat read the captivating blurbs, peruse a few pretty pages, and see if they had a match. It was fantastic to see so many love matches with fantastic books and students.
