African American History Month: Books to Read

February is African American History Month. Here are a few titles that would be great reads to honor the heritage, spirit, and contributions of African Americans–not only this month but all year long.

This Just In!

the Sequel to Everneath by Brodi Ashton

“Desperation replaces melancholy as Nikki struggles to rescue Jack from the Everneath. Every night since Jack took Nikki’s place in the Everneath’s Tunnels during Everneath (2012), he has visited her dreams. While his presence gives Nikki hope he’ll survive, it’s clear his memory is deteriorating–unless Jack escapes soon, the Everneath will claim him completely.” (Kirkus Reviews)

Kirkus calls this Paranormal Romance, “Intense, intriguing and highly addictive.”


Book Lovers Day!

Yes!  Today Friday, August 9th is Book Lovers Day!  As you can well expect, we love to read and Book Lovers Day encourages you to kick back, relax, and read a good book.  From reading under shaded trees or on your comfortable couch or in your local library (we hope the Buena Park Library!), the possibilities of what and where to read are endless!  What will you read today?

And of course, the Buena Park Library District has a bunch of great  books to curl up to.

Happy New RAHAAR!

HABZBZRA NHAMNM RAHAAR” is Zombish for Happy New Year, and what better way to start off the New Year than with zombies!

Come get your fix at the library, where we have all your zombie needs!


Did you know that The Walking Dead started out as a graphic novel series first? Check out “The Walking Dead: Compendium One” and compare the show you love to this fast paced graphic novel that will keep you up all night!


And if you haven’t seen The Walking Dead yet, why not try it out! Mark off that New Year’s resolution to watch great TV by checking out both seasons. You won’t be able to stop at just one episode!


And if you are like me and need something to fill the void until the season starts back up again in February, you might want to try “The Road to Woodbury” and “Rise of the Governor.” Both are novels written by the creator to The Walking Dead and will open your eyes to just another side of the story.

So has the Walking Dead piqued your interest in the living dead and want to find more things like it? Well, we have plenty! Come on in and we will be happy to help you discover your new favorites like “Shaun of the Dead”, “I am Legend”, and the classic “Night of the Living Dead”! We also have a great collection of fiction, non-fiction, teen and children’s books for the little zombies too!
