A spellbinding, addictive fantasy that steps outside the usual tropes and settings to create something truly memorable. Weaving in fascinating details of Islamic history and folklore, The City of Brass is a fast-paced, opulent roller-coaster ride drenched in intrigue, hidden dangers, and compelling world building. I hung on every word and can’t wait to see what comes next for this fascinatingly complex cast of characters.

This holiday season, Bullitt County Public Library is delighted to present a variety of free programs we hope will entertain, elevate the holiday spirit, and, of course, excite the kiddos. From visits with Santa to special community gatherings and holiday-themed movie nights, we’ve got something planned for all ages!
We also have a number of resources available for checkout, whether you want to watch a holiday classic to boost your Christmas cheer, settle in with a holiday-themed mystery for a cozy night in, or get advice on planning the perfect holiday gathering.
If you’re looking for a foreign horror film, try Let the Right One In (based on the novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist) is a new take on the vampire genre and follows a bullied 12-year-old boy named Oskar who befriends a pale young girl named Eli who shows up in their Swedish village. If this sounds familiar, there was also a late-2010 American film called Let Me In starring Kodi Smit-McPhee and Chloe Grace Moretz.
Halloween is only a week away, and we’re in the mood for some scary movies! Trish from our Lebanon Junction location has 7 picks sure to give you some chills and thrills this holiday season…
1. Night of the Living Dead The original!
Do you fear zombies? Well, this movie might push you over the edge. A cult classic, Night of the Living Dead has spectacularly terrifying and chilling cinematography well advanced for 1968. Even after 51 years Night of the Living Dead easily gives modern-day horror movies a run for their money. I’m coming to get you Barbara… 😉
2. A Quiet Place
Although not traditional Halloween movie fare, A Quiet Place rates high on the creepy thrill scale and is sure to leave you tense and gripping your seat! I love how wrapped up I get in the characters’ fight to avoid detection and even though I have seen this movie 15 times, I am still overcome with anxiety every time I watch it!
3. The Ring
A mysterious videotape is responsible for the horrifying death at the end of a week for anyone who watches it. Discovering the source of a family member’s death is this tape, a reporter must stop the chain of events before it hits even closer to home. “Seven days…”
4. The Haunting of Hill House (television series)
Flashbacks show the tragic and terrifying circumstances that forced them out of their home, ultimately revealing a terrifying conclusion. I was literally so caught up in this series that I suffered withdrawal from the fear when it ended!
A family faces terror like they have never experienced when their home and lives are taken over by demonic forces. The fear is real, and I can’t help but feel a shiver down my spine remembering how scared I was! The behind-the-scenes stories are even more frightening. They’re hhhhhheeeerrreeee….
6. The Sixth Sense
A child sees the dead when no one else can and turns to a psychologist who is facing his own demons. Terrifying and at the same time giving the viewer a mystery to solve. My favorite thing was the build-up and the twist when I realized what had happened! I see dead people…
7. It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
What can I say… I am a kid at heart and who doesn’t love Charlie Brown? A funny and heart-warming classic that I still love to watch every year! I got a rock… Get from the Library

This year, we want to make your Halloween extra spooktacular with fun events for the entire family all October long. From a special Halloween Family Storytime in the dark to our illuminated pumpkin trail and a haunted house, we’ve got you covered for pre-Halloween activities. We’ve also got you covered this month for some awesome, spooky reading recommendations. Beth from our Lebanon Junction Branch is kicking us off with six picks she thinks you’ll love!
A Head Full of Ghosts by Paul Tremblay
A teenaged girl begins to show signs of possession, and the family enlists the help of their priest and a reality show. Is she truly possessed, schizophrenic, or is the whole thing fake??
I think this is one of the best short stories ever written. It has had a lasting impact on me, and the story of sacrifice, mob action and just going along with something… these themes stand out in all of Jackson’s works, but most especially this one.
The Best of Richard Matheson by Richard Matheson
Matheson is a greatly overlooked author—his stories range from slightly twisted to terrifying. Many people don’t realize how prolific he was, but they’ve likely seen a movie or TV episode written by him.
