Hot off the presses!

So I’m doing something I’ve never done on this blog before today. Promoting a library event. *gasp!* 😉 It’s not that there haven’t been events in the past that I could have promoted. But this one, it’s special. Why? Because it’s for you. A young adult who lives in/near Bracebridge and has an interest in books. And you are who this blog is for!! So you can see why I’d be promoting the event right??? Ok. Good. 😉

Here’s the scoop. Local author, Bryan Dearsley, will be coming to the library to promote the release of his YA adventure Alex Mortimer and the Beast of Wildeor. This is happening in 3 weeks and 2 days (also known as December 10th) at a not terribly early hour of the day (a.k.a. 11am). Get out your calendar, and put that in!

He will not only be signing copies of his book, but Mr Dearsley will also do a reading from Alex Mortimer… making this event an honest to goodness BOOK SIGNING. Like ones you see famous people doing for their much less awesome books about how they got famous for doing nothing. (Paris Hilton anyone? Can’t include the Kardashians in that list, obvs, as they’re so hard working and don’t do things solely for the press. OBVS.) Clearly, however, this will be better. Because Mr Dearsley wrote this book himself! And it’s an adventure book! Who doesn’t love adventures???

There will be copies available to buy, for the low low price of $19.95, and some of that $$ goes to support the Friends of the Bracebridge Public Library. Who are these Friends you ask? Well they’re people who ❤ the library as much as we do and spend their time fundraising for awesome things the library needs. We ❤ the Friends here @ YAbooks@BPL. 🙂

So come to the library Dec 10th @ 11am for this totally YA-centric event!

No seriously, do it. 😉

VACATION. I has it.

There will be no book review post this week because:

See you next week!



Welcome to YAbooks@BPL!!

This blog is designed specifically for teens at the Bracebridge Public Library. My name is Megan, and I’m a reference librarian there. See? (No? Scroll down…) That’s me! (Well it’s my name anyway.)

This is me:

Right now, I am in the process of making the HUGE decision of what book I will review first. Don’t worry, I won’t take too long in making the decision, but it’s a pretty important one.

99%* of the time I am going to be selecting books from the BPL catalogue. Every once and a while I will probably stray to books that we don’t have… but don’t worry, even if we don’t have the book at BPL we can get it for you! All you have to do is ask.

If you have any comments or questions, please let me know. I want to know what you think about the books I pick, if you have suggestions for future books, and if you agree or disagree with my reviews. Remember, these reviews are based on my opinion. You are absolutely allowed to disagree with me!

So welcome to YAbooks@BPL and happy reading!!

*This is by no means an accurate statistic because I can’t see the future, but you get what I mean.
