GUEST BLOG: Creating an Enchanted Library in Destiny Falls by Elizabeth Pantley Plus Giveaway!

The Disappearance of Emily Banner

I’ve always loved libraries. There’s just something about the hushed magic they emit that makes me want to lose hours wandering the aisles.

My main character in the Destiny Falls Magic and Mystery book series loves libraries, too. Since she resides in an enchanted community, I gave her a very special library to explore.

At first, the library emerged as one that embraced all the best features of all the libraries I’ve ever visited. It’s got rows upon rows of books with shelves to the ceiling that require special ladders to help you reach the uppermost rows. It’s got cozy reading nooks with comfortable sofas, coffee tables, and softly glowing lamps. There are massive chandeliers hanging from the high ceiling making the whole place glow. A grand staircase leads up to the upper floors with more rows and rows of books. There’s a huge magazine section and a fantastic children’s corner. There’s even a coffee shop located in the corner.

Once I delved deeper into the Destiny Falls world, I realized that its enchanted existence extended to the library. Oh, this opened up so many possibilities! The library isn’t stagnant. It can change to suit the needs and moods of the librarian and the community. Any subject worth learning about is explored in fascinating depth. There aren’t just books about birds, for example. There are . . . well, birds! You’ll wish this library was located down the block from your house.

Every enchanted library should have an interesting head librarian, and of course, this one does. Meet Edna, who is also the town historian and has a wealth of knowledge about this strange community. She carries secrets that are only released when necessary, but when she lets one out of the bag, it’s usually a very big shock and an important key to solving a mystery.

Stop by and visit the Destiny Falls Library. I can’t tell you what you’ll find, because it’s always different. But I can tell you that it’s likely it’ll knock your socks off!
