Date Night Help From the Keller Library

KELLER - When you think of date night, your first thought might not be the library. But Keller public library hopes to change all that. Now you can check out dating kits to spark that love life.

"This is the perfect picnic," Librarian Liza Chapman explains as s he shows one of the date night kits. "It is a picnic basket filled with everything you need to have a picnic.”

The picnic kit comes with a waterproof tarp, a planning guide, even a portable speaker and, of course, a corkscrew.

Others are an Italian themed kit, a game night kit, and a French-themed kit. “

“I actually did the Italian one and it was great. We made pasta, we listened to some Dean Martin Italian love songs. It got us out of our comfort zone." said Chapman.

The library says so far the kits are a hit, with most kits being checked out already and two on hold. And guess who’s checking them out?  “A lot of the ones that have been put on hold have been put on hold by men. So I am hoping that they’re seeing these and going ‘what a great idea, I am going to surprise my wife or my girlfriend with this really cute idea.” said Chapman.
