All of us at the Black Creek Village Library wish you a very happy Thanksgiving! We hope you have a lovely day with family and friends. We will be closing at 5:00PM the Wednesday before Thanksgiving (November 22) and we will be closed all day Thanksgiving Day. We will be open our normal hours on Friday November 24th.

We will not be having our regular FLASH Friday program this week, but we are having a Christmas Movie Double Feature! So, take a break from Black Friday shopping and watch some fun Christmas films here at the library! We will start the first movie at 1:30PM! It is a great way to celebrate the start of the Christmas season!

December is right around the corner and we are getting ready for the kids’ winter break! We will be doing a fun activity each day during the week the kids are off of school between Christmas and New Year’s. Tuesday through Friday we will be doing a fun activity during the afternoon. If your kids love Elsa from the movie Frozen you will not want to miss our Friday December 29th storytime. Elsa will be here to read stories to the kids and the kids can have their picture taken with her afterward. Storytime starts at 10:30AM and ends around 11:00.  She will also be doing a meet and greet at 11:15AM.  Stop by the library and pick up a December events bookmark so you don’t miss a thing!

With the days getting shorter and the nights getting longer (and colder) there is no better time to stay in with a good book or movie. We have many great titles here at the library! Stop by and check out our new release areas or find an old classic to enjoy. If you do not have time to read we also have many great titles on audiobook for you to borrow. Audiobooks are a great way to read a book while you are busy with chores or even while you are in the car going from place to place. If you are too busy to visit the library you can borrow many of great e-book and e-audiobooks that your library has to offer. Just go to infosoup.org and see what you can find!
