Serving Breathitt County since 1894

The Breathitt County Public Library is proud to introduce our Teen Advisory Board!

The board is made up of teenagers from across the county from different schools and different walks of life members will give important input about the library. From paint colors to upcoming programs and even titles to add to our collection, the board is helping shape the library into a more inviting space for young people.

We opened our board to any teen in Breathitt County regardless of where they went to school, their gender or race.

We only had three requirements. You must be between the ages of 13 - 18, you must live in Breathitt County and you must want to make an impact on your community by helping the largest FREE services facility in the county.

A look at Heartless by Marissa Meyer

by Arabella Stamper

Everyone knows the story of the Red Queen, but have you ever wondered what occurred to make her such a cold person? In Meyer’s book, Heartless, the Queen’s story is told. The Red Queen’s name is Catherine, and she was a Duchess before she became a queen.

The King of Hearts wants to marry her, but Catherine has other interest in mind. Like baking, finding out more about the King’s new jester, and discovering the mystery behind the sudden Jabberwocky appearances in Hearts.

Although we know how it will end, the ending will leave you wishing for a happier tale.
