We’re very taken with this week’s #BookFaceFriday!
It’s the perfect time of year for a spooky story like Mary Downing Hahn’s Took: A Ghost Story. Grab a blanket, a warm cup of cider, and a tale of terror… if you dare…
“This creepy tale skillfully weaves in—and honors—the oral tradition of folklore, legends, and ghost stories.”
—Horn Book Magazine
It’s available to all Nebraska OverDrive Libraries in eBook format. 173 libraries across the state share this collection of 17,165 audiobooks and 28,972 eBooks.

Velcome to #BookFaceFriday!
Grab your garlic and wooden stakes, we’re wrapping up October with this classic tale of horror (Puffin Classics, 1994, first published 1897). Written as a series of journal entries and letters, it tells the story of the quest to destroy the evil Count Dracula and end his reign of terror.
“Those who cannot find their own reflection in Bram Stoker’s still-living creation are surely the undead .” — New York Times Review of Books
This week’s #BookFace model is our new TBBS Circulation Technician, Amy Irons!
