We want you to get the most out of our great library. So we are calling for your ideas for library offerings!  What kind of programs or events would you like to see at the library? Are you interested in the art of adult coloring? Is there a craft or hobby you would like to learn more about? Literary events you would like to attend? How about a book club for kids or teens? While we cannot guarantee that we will be able to fill all suggestions; this will help us learn what our patrons are truly interested in! You can fill out a suggestion slip in the library or email your ideas to bcl@mail.owls.lib.wi.us. We look forward to hearing from you!

There is still time to enter the Friends of the Library spring basket giveaway! The basket is filled with all kinds of great spring goodies. Tickets are only $.25 each or 5 for $1.00. We are drawing the winner on the morning of Friday April 22.

Everyone here at Black Creek Village Library hopes you had a fantastic Easter!

Last week we told you that our April’s Thursday Page Turners book would be “The Second Time Around” By Mary Higgins Clark.  However, we have changed our minds and have decided to read a wonderful Amish mystery by Vannetta Chapman called “Murder Tightly Knit”. There are books here for you to borrow in the library. If you have already read this great book we would love for you to come too! On the other hand, if you would just like to come and just sit in with the group you are more than welcome. We talk about many topics during our hour together.  Our next meeting is Thursday April 21st. We truly hope to see you then!

Just in time for spring our Friends of the Library have a spring basket of goodies to give away! Come in and take a look at all the items. Tickets are only $.25 each or 5 for $1.00. We are drawing the winner on Friday April 22.

April is right around the corner! We are super excited to announce that a fantastic local author, Susan Manzke, will be visiting the Black Creek Village Library on April 14th at 6:30 PM to discuss her books and the ins and outs of being an author. We hope you can join us!

The Black Creek Village Library is proud to be a drop off site for the Help the Homeless Hygiene Drive. We are collecting new hygiene items that will be donated to local area crisis agencies. The drive runs until March 13. They need household cleaning supplies, baby items, first aid supplies, and body care items. We do have a listing of the most needed items here at the library, and it can be found on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/blackcreekvillagelibrary. This is certainly a great way to embrace those in our community who could use some help and support.
