When it’s cold outside sometimes a good book is just the thing to warm the cockles. Well, on Feb. 8 double your pleasure with a good book and a possible romantic interlude as the Oak Bluffs Library brings back Literary Speed Dating, its popular event in the run up to Valentines Day.

The rules are simple, bring a book (loved, hated or recently read) to break the ice as you speed date through the prospects. Each date lasts just a few minutes.

The event is from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at 56R School street, Oak Bluffs.
