NBC10 Extra: How dozens of singles are looking for love at the library

    Twenty-nine people. Twenty-nine books. Fifteen tables.

    That was the scene on a recent Wednesday evening inside the Free Library of Philadelphia where 15 women and 14 men tried their hand at speed-dating. The twist? Bring a book to talk about.
    You’ve read the story. Now you can watch NBC10’s Lu Ann Cahn talk with WHYY/NewsWorks’ Peter Crimmins about what it’s like to watch sometimes tense, sometimes awkward, sometimes fun speed-dating in action.
