Foreword: January 2, 2020

By on

All of us here at the library are looking forward to a fantastic new year!  In 2019, we had over 25,000 separate visits! Some of you came to browse the collection, which accounted for almost 55,000 items checked out since January 1, 2019. Some of you came to use our computers, which accounted for around 2,300 separate public computer logins. Some of you came to one of our adult, children’s or family programs, which accounted for the over 3500 attendees at library events. Some of you called to find a number or address and some of you donated your time, money or items to the library. Whatever your interaction with us this year was, we thank you for making the library a busy, fun and useful center of activity!  

Speaking of activity, we have a fun hallway project this month! We want you to design your own robot. Choose from either a standard head or body and then you fill in the rest! We will put your creation in the hallway for all to admire.

Having legal trouble?  We can help!  Attorney Robert D. Sweeney from Sweeney Law Offices S.C. specializes in just about everything, and has been able to help a lot of our patrons by providing free, confidential legal advice at the Black Creek Village Library on the second Monday of every month from 5 – 6:30 pm.  Time slots have been filling up quickly, so make sure to reserve yours as soon as possible.  To reserve a 30 minute time slot on January 13th, please sign up in person at the library, call us at (920) 984-3094, or email us at
