Whether you’re an avid reader or just fancy immersing yourself in a good read from time to time, if you fancy adding a little more mystery and surprise to your reading experience, read on…

We’re giving our customers the chance to enjoy a blind date with a book – completely free!

Simply visit Customer Care on the First Floor, between 10am and 4pm, have a read of the brief synopsis on the wrapped books and pick one that takes your fancy! Enjoy your read and return the book to be rewrapped and recycled.

It’s a great opportunity for you to bump into fellow bookworms of Sutton Coldfield, provide fellow members of the community with the opportunity to read books they wouldn’t otherwise have access to ad add an element of surprise to your favourite pass-time.

How it works…

1) Have a read of the genre and brief synopsis on the wrapped books on display

2) Pick one that takes your fancy

3) Take your book home and enjoy your read

4) Return the book to be rewrapped and recycled.

Recyclable wrapping

All our books are wrapped in completely recyclable paper, so please either unwrap your book carefully and rewrap before returning or add the wrapping to your weekly recycling collection.

All book donations welcome!

If you have any books gathering dust that you’d like to give someone else the opportunity to enjoy, please bring to the book bank so we can send them on their way!
