A blog for young readers (and YA lovers) from the Providence Athenaeum.
The Providence Athenaeum is a unique library and cultural center in the heart of Providence, Rhode Island. Growing out of the Providence Library Company (fourth library in the United States), the Athenaeum as we know it was formed in 1836. Our handsome building on the corner of Benefit and College was completed in 1838.
We are one of the few surviving membership libraries in the nation. Student memberships are available - visit or call for more information.
This blog is updated by one of our circulation assistants (and YA enthusiast), RJ. Follow us to find out what's new in our Young Adult corner, or just for a daily dose of literary shenanigans.
You can follow the Ath on twitter or facebook. Our catalog and much more information about us can be found at our homepage.
We’re getting close to the end! Whoever wins this round will be part of the final four along with Batman, Buffy Summers, and Katniss Everdeen.
The werewolf took out the ferocious manticore in Round Eight, and Cthulhu conquered the fiery Balrog in Round Two. Now it’s wolf-man versus, er, dragon-squid-unholy-nightmare-man.
Cthulhu easily has the size advantage – not to mention a hometown advantage here in Providence, where his legend was born. But the werewolf could beat the odds and sink his fangs into the elder god’s squishy octopus head.
What do you think? Who’s left standing? Who will own the night?
