Ashley has worked for Ascension Parish Library for over five years, first at the information desk at our Dutchtown location and now for the Youth Services department planning teen and tween programs. She also curates lists for the Shelf Analysis blog. Ashley loves pretty much all genres of books, but the two she reads from most often are historical fiction and mystery. She is a firm believer in rereading favorites, so all books on this list have been read, or listened to, more than once.
K-Pop Starter Kit
K-Pop is a genre of pop music out of South Korea that has become so popular it now has a global audience. According to NPR's guide to getting into K-Pop, it is “a maximalist dreamland full of color, high concept performances and videos, a plethora of performers and unrivaled choreography.” Whether you’re a K-Pop expert or a newbie, this list will get you going with books and music from our library. Curated by Stephanie Mayeux.
Read, Watch, and Listen to Your Favorite Decade
To celebrate the 60th anniversary of Ascension Parish Library we collected books, movies, and music from each decade that will transport you back in time. If you want to feel far out in the 1960s, think a book from the 2010s is bae, or want to explore any decade in between, this list has you covered.
