The Cedar Rapids Public Library is using a service similar to speed-dating to help people find their new best friend. During speed dating, a person rotates around a room, talking to different people to try and find a match. People will rotate talking to each person for about 5 minutes.
They will have a list of ice-breaking questions like favorite TV shows or favorite songs. When it's over they can decide on exchanging contact information to possibly become new friends.

You must be 18 years of age or older to participate.
