Looking for your literary love match? Come to the Special Collections Blind Date With Books event Wednesday, Feb. 12 from 2-4 pm.

And be sure to take a look at the rare books and manuscripts on display, all focusing on elements of love, romance, and heartbreak, from medieval through contemporary times. Registration is not required.
