Omaha Public Library Speed Dating event yields another love connection
For the past five years, Omaha Public Library (OPL) has offered Speed Dating at the library, and occasionally we hear back from couples who were matched through the process with updates about their relationship. One of our favorite couples that were matched at the 2011 Speed Dating event welcomed their first child last year. Another participant from 2014 was happy to share that she was no longer dating her match, but was now engaged! OPL is all about connecting people with whatever they need to enrich their lives – even if that means helping to find them a date!
OPL’s speed dating event is a fun and easy way for Omaha area singles to meet several potential dates in one evening. Single people, ages 25 and up, are invited to attend
Speed Dating at Your Library on Friday, February 13, 7 p.m. at
W. Dale Clark Main Library, 215 S. 15th St.
Each participant will have three minutes to chat with a potential match. Conversation starters will be provided (just in case). If two people mutually indicate interest in each other, they will be given contact information to schedule a real date on their own. A cash bar will be available at the event.
There are now three age ranges to choose from, and it’s up to participating individuals to select the age range they are interested in dating upon registration. The following age group selections will be available: 25-40ish; 35-45ish; and 50ish and up. The event for 50+ daters is being offered in partnership with AARP.
“We listen to feedback each year and continue to improve this event,” said event coordinator Amy Mather. “We want to maximize the potential for love connections.”
The event is free, but space is limited and registration is required. Refreshments will be served.
