The Rosie Project
by Graeme Simsion
Discussion: Thursday, April 9, 2015 at 1:30pm
Don Tillman is getting married. He just doesn’t know who to yet. But he has designed the Wife Project, using a sixteen-page questionnaire to help him find the perfect partner. She will most definitely not be a barmaid, a smoker, a drinker, or a late-arriver.
Rosie Jarman is all these things. She is also fiery and intelligent and beautiful. And on a quest of her own to find her biological father—a search that Don, a professor of genetics, might just be able to help her with.
The Wife Project teaches Don some unexpected things. Why earlobe length is an inadequate predictor of sexual attraction. Why quick-dry clothes aren’t appropriate attire in New York. Why he’s never been on a second date. And why, despite your best scientific efforts, you don’t find love: love finds you.
The LOVE Collection- DVDs
Starting in April, both libraries will be getting in a rotating monthly collection of DVDs called the LOVE collection. Every month, each library will get a delivery of 70-80 assorted DVDs in distinctive red cases. These can be checked out like new DVDs (2-day checkout with $1/day fines). They will act as temporary expansions of our DVD collection. When the time comes, make sure to let us know what you think of the new collection!
