This organization would not be possible without the time, effort, and dedication of their members, for volunteering, donating, and contributing however they are able. If you are interested in joining this group of wonderful people and becoming a Friend of the Library, or volunteering with the Friends, you can learn more by going to their website: http://blackcreeklibrary.org/support-library/friends-library?fbclid=IwAR... or by liking their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Friends-of-the-Black-Creek-Library-Black-Creek-....

The next meeting of the Black Creek Library Page Turners is next Wednesday, February 27th at 1 pm. In February, we’re going retro with Breakfast at Tiffany’s by Truman Capote:

“The story of Holly Golightly, a hill-billy turned Manhattan playgirl, and the eclectic circle of friends who surround her. The unnamed narrator of the story is a young writer from a small town, out on his own for the first time. He lives in a New York brownstone and dreams of literary success.

“In this seductive, wistful masterpiece, Truman Capote created a woman whose name has entered the American idiom and whose style is a part of the literary landscape. Holly Golightly knows that nothing bad can ever happen to you at Tiffany's; her poignancy, wit, and naïveté continue to charm.” – (from the publisher.)

Copies of Breakfast at Tiffany’s are available at the circulation desk for checkout.

If you’re unable to join us in person, you can still participate online in our Facebook discussion: https://www.facebook.com/groups/2168740469821856/?source_id=87182937411.
