Do you fall for pickup lines?

Ever have someone say the perfect pickup line to you?  Or maybe say something that just caught your attention in the right way?

If you participated in the recent Friends with Benefits event here at Central Library, you saw our display of books that only show you a pickup line as an invitation to take the book home. If you weren't able to attend that event, however, don't worry; these books are on display all month long in Center for the Reader!  Each one is covered in black paper and has one line from the book on it, along with 1-3 chili peppers (see the sign for the degrees of spiciness!).  If you think the book sounds intriguing, take it home, unwrap and settle in for what we hope will be a delicious read!  And if this blind date is a dud, no worries! Simply return the book and see if another one catches your eye. We won't be offended. We know it sometimes takes a few tries before you find something that clicks!
