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.
It’s Batman! The Dark Knight overcame all obstacles and defeated the mighty Cthulhu. If anyone could do it, it would be Batman… or maybe his competitor in the next round.
That’s right, tomorrow is the FINAL ROUND of our Who Will Own the Night Tournament, and the Caped Crusader is going up again the chosen one: Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Check back here tomorrow to vote!
As always, you can come into the Athenaeum to see the full bracket of contenders and vote in person. And this is the last week to check out our summer Staff Picks on the Own The Night theme!
