Foreword - News and to-dos

Foreword May 10, 2021

It is a busy time here at the Black Creek Village Library. Along with some spring cleaning we are getting ready for our Summer Reading Program! We are super excited about our theme “Tails and Tales” as we love animals and animal stories. As you are surely aware, this year will certainly look different than our other years, but we are hopeful that we will still be able to offer a fun program this summer. Miss Krista is just waiting for the final word from our Library Board on how we will be able to offer programs this year.

If you are a fan of books that have a twist to them then we certainly have some books for you! Stop by the library and check out our display of books that have a twist in them that will make you sit up and say “whoa, I certainly didn’t see that coming!” These books are fun to read with the extra daylight of spring and they are even better yet when it gets a bit stormy outside, which it seems to be doing quite a bit lately.

Once again don’t forget to get your tickets for the Friends of the Black Creek Library’s spring basket! Ticket are just 25 cents each or 5 tickets for $1.00. The drawing and winner of the basket will be notified on Wednesday, May 25th.

Our current hours are:

M-Th: 9am-7pm

Friday: 9am-4pm

Saturday: 9am-12pm

Now that spring is here, we imagine you are spending more time out and about. You are probably not thinking about your library as much since the weather has turned warmer and the days are longer, but we don’t want you to forget about us! We have many other items besides books and movies that are available for you to borrow even during a busier spring.

For instance; we have many great audiobooks that you can borrow and listen to when it’s difficult for you to sit down and read. It is awesome to listen to your favorite author’s stories while on the go! Also, on the plus side you won’t strain your eyesight reading some of the small print that some books have, and who doesn’t like a book read to them now and then.

We also have great CDs of new and classic music you can borrow to help keep you motivated while you are getting your work done. Better yet, you get to keep a CD for two weeks! Come in and see what we have, or check on infosoup.org and request some of your favorite artists to be held for you at your library.

Magazines! Did you know we have magazines that you can borrow for two weeks? We have many different topics to choose from, and if we don’t have it here, we can most likely get it from another library for you to borrow.

There you have it, your library has much more than just books and movies on hand to borrow. So, come on in and take a look at everything we have to offer today!

Our current hours are:

M-Th: 9am-7pm

Friday: 9am-4pm
