Here at the library we think autumn is one of the best times of the year to be a Wisconsinite! Football, orchards, hunting and more! Come and celebrate our unique Wisconsin identity with filmmaker John Mitchell and a showing of his recent documentary, aptly titled Cheeseheads! Called “a love letter” to Wisconsin, Cheeseheads explores what it truly means to be citizen of this beloved state and why being a “cheesehead” is so much more than wearing a funny foam hat!

The evening will begin at 5:30pm with a Tailgate Meet & Greet and the feature presentation will begin at 6:00pm. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker. Pending final confirmation, we may also have a special guest in attendance-stay tuned! This is a free event and you do not want to miss it!

Speaking of football, come check out our display of pigskin-related library materials on our display rack across from the circulation desk. From Packer biographies to juvenile non-fiction and Young Adult novels we have quite the offerings! All materials are available for checkout!

Welcome to September! It is back-to-school season and if you or a family member is taking classes or going to school this semester, remember that the library has high speed and wireless internet access. Grab your laptop or your textbooks and come get to work! Take a break by working on our new community puzzle-a scene of a deer wading in a river. A perfect fall picture!

For this month’s table topic we want to know what your favorite ride at Bay Beach is, or your favorite amusement park ride. Our hallway project tasks you with designing your own pirate ship flag, eye patch and parrot optional!

Coming up on Wednesday, September 18th is another Naturally Clean program. The last one focused on natural cleaning products for the home, this one will focus on products for the body. Come to this make & take workshop to learn how to make all-natural deodorant and foot powder that are just as effective as commercially manufactured products. Registration is recommended. The program starts at 5:30pm.

The library is a drop-off site for this year’s fall rummage sale sign-ups and you have until tomorrow to get them in! Maps will also be available prior to the sale on Saturday, September 14th.

Make sure you get into the library today or Friday, as we will be closed for the Labor Day weekend on Saturday, August 31st and Monday, September 2st! We will reopen with regular hours on Tuesday, September 3rd.

We want to say a special thank you to the Friends of the Library for donating a second telescope to the library so that we were able to give two lucky summer reading participants their own telescope!

Ten years already!? 2020 is a census year, and last week census employees started the phase of this process known as Address Canvasing. This means that it is very likely that you will see census employees walking around our area. They will only need to make contact with a property if they cannot determine how many unit dwellings it contains. They will be wearing official ID badges and carrying black canvas bags and laptops. 

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 September 9th, please sign up in person at the library, call us at (920) 984-3094, or email us at bcl@blackcreeklibrary.org

We have refreshed and added to our backpack kit collection! New additions include: yoga, mindfulness, and health and fitness. Each backpack kit has several books, a CD or DVD and at least one interactive activity perfect for family fun!

Have you seen our butterfly house? This handmade haven for monarchs was given to us by patron Alizah, along with three caterpillars that are munching their way through some milkweed. Visit the front counter to view their progress as they build their cocoons and become butterflies!
