Sliding into a comfy bed, wrapped up in a warm blanket with a good book is what every winter evening should have. Lorna Code, the librarian, purchases books every couple of months to keep the shelves stocked and students happy. The last shipment she received was mainly focused on different series and sequels. Code has a program that goes along with the checkout system that allows her to purchase new books that follow in the series.

“I can submit my collection of books that we have and they tell me what we are missing within the set. That’s what I did with this order specifically,” Code said.

The majority that have been purchased are fantasy and sci-fi books due to them coming in sets.

A six book series by Suzanne Young starts with The Epidemic and was highlighted by Code. The books revolve around an epidemic of suicide and how teenagers evolve when they recieve treatment. The main character Sloane Barstow plays the protagonist and tries to cope with the suicide of her brother. Along with coping with this loss, she cannot have a single outburst or the government would have clearance to bring her into ‘the program’ that wipes away any emotions.

Code also has many other series including, The Dark Artifices, The Lynburn Legacy and The Luxe Series. Each can be found on the metal cart in the library, go check them out before their gone.
