Thank you to the UW - Extension for coming last Wednesday to show us how to make roller coasters! We had a blast creating and trying out our roller coaster designs!

The August game boards are now available! You can stop by anytime to pick up your final Summer Reading game boards. July is almost over; so finish up your July games and bring them to the library to be included in the grand prize drawings!

There is so much to do at the Black Creek Village Library this summer! This week we have Paws to Read with our reading dog, Tonka, on Monday; Smash Bash on Wednesday, and Free Build on Friday!

Would you like to break open a geode and see the crystals that have formed inside? If so, you need to sign up for Smash Bash on Wednesday! Everyone will get to break open and keep their own geode. We will also have many other things to see and explore. You will need to sign up in advance, so we can make sure there are geodes for everyone.  We have less than 10 spots remaining, so sign up today!

We still have some spaces left for our Honey Tasting and Bees Wax Candle Making event available.  We will be looking at and tasting some of the different flavors of honey that bees make with different flowers. This program is for all ages and is on Wednesday, August 9th, at 1:00PM. If you are interested in signing up, you can do so in person at the library, or give us a call at 920-984-3094 and we can get you registered.

We had so much fun last week with Smokey’s Birthday, learning balloon twisting, and meeting author, Elise Moser. We want to thank Elise Moser for visiting our library to talk about her book on recycling, and to Jason Love for showing us how to make great balloon animals. We also want to send out a huge thank you to the Friends of the Black Creek Village Library for providing the refreshments and the cookie supplies for us to decorate for Smokey’s birthday! They were delicious!

Please take note that Paws to Read is cancelled for Monday (July 10th), but don’t worry, it will be back at its scheduled time next Monday.  See you then! If you are interested in reading to Tonka, you can sign up at the library or give us a call at 920-984-3094 to see what time slots we have available!

Don’t forget to come to the library on Wednesday, July 12th, for our crafting afternoon. We will have Crafting with Beads and Sticks for everyone starting at 1:00pm and will transition into teen crafting at 2:30.

There are still spots remaining for our programs that have preregistration. If you are interested in the Roller Coaster making (July 19th), the Smash Bash (July 26th), and the Honey Tasting & Beeswax candle making (August 9th), you can sign up at the library or give us a call.

We have had many questions about why books have to be checked out from the library in order to count for our Summer Reading Program. Here is the simple answer: our physical circulation (items checked out from our library) is a large part of determining how much money we are given each year to fund programs like Summer Reading, to provide new materials for you to check out, and to keep our library maintained and properly staffed.  This is why we ask that the books you use for our summer reading program come from the library.

This Week’s Programming Schedule:

Wednesday, July 12. Craft with Beads and Sticks 1:00PM – 2:30PM.
Wednesday, July 12. Teen Craft 2:30PM – 4:00PM.
