Hello Raiders, and happy Friday!! We’re so excited to share the news with you–one of our own librarians is officially a published author! Shana Chartier, our ERC Librarian, has published her first novel, Past Lives, a young adult book that we will now house in our Juvenile collection.
Congratulations Shana! If you’re interested in what this book is about, you can find it on Amazon here!
Did you know the library runs an ongoing treasure hunt? Our Reference Librarian puts candy in a book and then places the book somewhere on the library shelves. Then he releases clues about the location on our social media outlets! If you find the book, you can return it to library circulation for the next seeker!
Want to play? Follow us on Facebook and Twitter, and keep an eye out for the clues!
It’s finally here–my debut novel! Here’s the blurb and a link–go read it, please? Pretty please? Thank you!
This is the story of how I died…repeatedly.
J has been cursed for all eternity. In her very first life on Earth, she made the mistake of falling in love with her sister’s betrothed… and it was all downhill from there. In revolutionary France, J and the other members of Marie Antoinette’s court are forced into hiding, desperate to escape a wild uprising out for their blood. From there, she is reincarnated in America in the late 1800s, where she disguises herself as a man in the Confederate army and is surrounded by carnage and blood. In Austria in the 1930s, she became the only hope for her Jewish friends’ survival against the Nazi storm. Now, as a 21st century teenager, she faces mountains of extracurricular volunteer work and a ruthless bully all on her quest to get into a competitive college.
Talk about a bummer.
Beside her in each life, Sebastian finds himself on the wrong side of every battle. Always a soldier, he makes it his mission time and time again to rescue J with the hope that maybe someday they’ll get the chance to be together, if only that were possible. They say that everything happens for a reason, but can J and Sebastian find a way to break their curse and finally make a life together?
Check out Past Lives today–only $2.99!
Have a great Halloween weekend everyone! Don’t forget to stop by the library for some ghoulish DVD’s and books! Trick or treat!
Coming up: NaNoWriMo meet ups start this Monday! Can you write 50,000 words in 30 days? Take on the challenge with us!
Keep up to date with happenings at the library by checking out the Library News section on our main library page! Here’s what’s going on this week:
HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH
Sept. 15 to Oct. 15 is Hispanic Heritage month. To celebrate, we created a display of books on the Hispanic experience in the United States. You can find it next to the Catalog Computers in the Reference Room.
LIBRARY TREASURE HUNT
The Library Treasure Hunt has started! Check out Regina Library on Instagram, Facebook, and/or Twitter to find clues about where we’ve hidden a book filled with candy.
NEW GROUP STUDY ROOM
Following suggestions from students in the library survey, a new group study (Group Study F) has been added to our reserveable rooms. The room does not have computers, but does have a whiteboard. You can reserve it the same way as the other rooms by clicking on the “Reserve a Group Study” button to the right.
Group Study B is now reserveable by individuals for 2 hour stretches at a time. Group Studies B, C and F can now be reserved for 4 hours at a time by a group of two or more.
