duck commander family book

By Jamie Bayne, BCPL information services supervisor Like many good red-blooded rednecks, I am a huge fan of the show Duck Dynasty produced by A&E.  Being such a prodigious fan, I was leery to read the book Duck Commander Family in case some illusion I harbored was shattered.  Because, let’s face it, television – especially reality television – is all about entertainment.  The television show focuses on the men of Duck Commander – Phil, Willie, Jase, Si and (to a … Continue reading

real vampires have curves

By Renee Schmutz-Sowards, BCPL circulation specialist Let me start by stating that I’m not a fan of the current, slightly over done, genre of vampire-themed literature.   For those not familiar, these books are generally written for a young adult audience, high school to early 20’s, and often revolve around an introspective, angst-ridden teen protagonist, usually female, who in addition to the everyday teenage concerns  of “Am I pretty enough?”, “Why doesn’t anyone understand me?”, “Am I cool enough?”, “ … Continue reading

We made this … Continue reading

generation t books

By Renee Schmutz-Sowards, circulation specialist at Boyd County Public Library I discovered Generation T sometime around 2007, when my awesome Mom sent me a copy. I was a young newlywed living far away from all my friends and family, and Mom, Dad and Brother had taken to sending the occasional box of fun and silly goodies from home. Along with the Generation T book (“108 ways to transform a T-shirt” the brightly colored, hip-looking cover promised me!) also came a … Continue reading

No matter what your literary taste, Boyd County Public Library probably has a book club to match it.

The library and the BCPL Friends help all regular members obtain copies of each book to be discussed. For more information, call Amanda Clark at 606.329.0518, … Continue reading

Two of the most famous kids in children’s literature will be visiting their friends in Ashland and Boyd County later this month. Most kids – and their parents – have grown up with the affable Berenstain Bear family, learning about a litany of issues, from bullying to obesity, to visiting the dentist, along the way. Brother Bear and Sister Bear are making a special visit to the Kyova Branch on Saturday, Nov. 17, at 2 p.m. (The first 50 will … Continue reading
