Due to high incidences of COVID-19 in Bullitt County, all BCPL locations are now operating as “Curbside Only.” County incidence rates will be reviewed daily, and we will reopen to the public after rates have been out of the red zone for two consecutive days. Please note, Sunday services are available at Ridgway Memorial only. For more information, please visit our COVID-19 information page.
Library materials remain available via our 24 Hour Libraries and Curbside Pickup service. Items can be returned in our book drops at any time and copy, print, and fax services may be requested over the phone. In addition, we’re available to provide phone and online assistance, and we’re busy creating virtual events and fun take-and-make activity kits for you to enjoy from the comfort of home.
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.
