The Library is HAUNTED!

Library Haunted House October 27

Shriek freely and pardon the screams… the library is HAUNTED!

Registration is required by 1 week before the event. To register, speak to a librarian or call 812-926-0646.

Who knows what might be lurking in the library!

Teen Book Club Reads Everything, Everything

My disease is as rare as it is famous. It’s a form of Severe Combined Immunodeficiency, but basically, I’m allergic to the world. I don’t leave my house and have not left my house in fifteen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla.

But then one day, a moving truck arrives. New next-door neighbors. I look out the window, and I see him. He’s tall, lean, and wearing all black—black t-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers, and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely. He catches me looking and stares at me. I stare right back. His name is Olly. I want to learn everything about him, and I do. I learn that he is funny and fierce. I learn that his eyes are Atlantic Ocean-blue and that his vice is stealing silverware. I learn that when I talk to him, my whole world opens up, and I feel myself starting to change—starting to want things. To want out of my bubble. To want everything, everything the world has to offer.

Maybe we can’t predict the future, but we can predict some things. For example, I am certainly going to fall in love with Olly. It’s almost certainly going to be a disaster.

Everyone ages 13-19 is welcome to attend! We can’t wait to see you there!
