All Bullitt County Public Library facilities are CLOSED to the public until further notice. But, we are still here for you—from home and once again from our library buildings! We are in the process of a phased reopening, which now includes enhanced safety measures and equipment for our staff, the reopening of our book drops to accept returns, and the return of Curbside Pickup. Library materials are also available to you online and in our 24 Hour Library machines. In addition, we’re available to provide phone and online assistance, and we’re busy creating virtual events for you to enjoy from the comfort of home. For more information, visit our COVID-19 page.
Use the menu to the right to learn about all available resources for a particular format (like e-books!), or click on a specific resource icon (like Hoopla!) to begin exploring available titles. With just a few simple clicks, you can access thousands of free e-books, audiobooks, music albums, videos, and more.
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.
