Contrary to what you might think, librarians are super strong! Don't let our sensible cardigans fool you; we are experts at moving furniture! This past weekend, we worked hard to completely renovate and revitalize the library. Now, children have a designated area just for them, nearly quadrupling the amount of space they have to learn and grow. Teens and tweens have a cozy, quiet area to work on homework, chat, or just hang out, and adults have a quiet and secluded space for reading and working. You are all invited to check out the awesome new changes anytime. Don't be shy...ask for a tour!

This week, we have Black Creek 4K kids coming down to visit us and learn more about our library. We just love our young guests...they bring life and vivacity to the library!

We are also proud to host antique appraiser Mark Moran this Thursday from 5-8PM. There are only a few spots left to have your beloved antique appraised for only $5.00, with all proceeds going towards the new teen area.

With summer on the horizon, our week consists of kids coming to the library for field trips and us going to talk to students about the Summer Reading Program! Can a field trip to the library be any cooler? From getting to check out awesome books to enjoying crafts and stories, we are big fans of having lots and lots of kids use our library!

This week, there is a Friends of BCVL meeting at 6:30 PM here at the library. This amazing group of volunteers is always looking for new members, so stop on by and meeting the friendliest people in town! Also, I am hosting the 3rd Thursday Page Turners at 1:00 PM this week and we will be reading  "Heroes are my Weakness," one of my favorite romantic suspense books. It is a quick read, so if you want to come and pick up a copy before Thursday, there is still time!

Kids, come on down for storytime on Friday at 10:30 for Baby/Toddler Storytime and 10:45 for Preschool Storytime. Don't forget about Library After School Time on Friday with Miss Krista!

The library will be closed on Saturday, May 23 and Monday, May 25 for Memorial Day.

We recently purchased an enormous collection of classic movies for a really inexpensive price. Essentially, we got timeless pieces of cinema on a dime! It was an amazing purchase and it turns out that people in our neighborhood absolutely adore classic films! These movies are flying off the shelves. We also appreciate our new releases, of course, but sometimes taking it back a few decades to the black and white movies makes the viewing especially enjoyable.

Our Summer Reading Calendar is officially set, and we have movie parties scheduled! Stop on by for a calendar today.

BCVL is turning back time! Join us on Fridays for Baby/Toddler Storytime at 10:30 AM and Preschool Storytime at 11, just like it used to be! Jackie and friends will have fun with stories, songs, puppets, and crafts while also learning about the world around us. Everyone is welcome!

Did you know? Library After School Time (LAST) meets every Friday at 3:30 at the library. It is for school-aged kids and includes Lego time, crafts, snacks, and fun! Thanks to the Friends of the Black Creek Village Library, the kids now have SnapCircuits to play with, an educational game that allows kids to build circuits and make cool inventions!

Another wonderfully generous donation was $100.00 by the Wednesday Afternoon Cardplayers, a group of gentlemen who play cards in the basement of BCVL. We are so grateful for our wonderful community members!

Don’t forget to sign up for a spot with Mark Moran, famous antique appraiser, who will be visiting the Black Creek Village Library on Thursday, May 28, 2015, from 5-8PM. You can stop by or call the library at (920) 984-3094 to reserve your spot for only $5. Mark will tell you if your beloved heirloom is worth a million!

 

The staff are such an important part of Black Creek Village Library, and on evenings during the week, perhaps you have seen a new face! Krista Knapp joined us in March and has been a splendid addition to our team. Not only does she have a passion for libraries, but her enthusiasm is fantastic as well! She has been the creator of so many fun additions to our library, including coming up with the Library Fortune Teller. Kids can come to the library and pick their fortune out of the crystal ball. These fortunes range from reading a Boxcar Children book to exploring the nonfiction section. Once they complete their fortune, they get rewarded with extra computer time! Come on down to meet Krista today!

 

Events this week:

Thursday: Knitting at 6PM

Friday: Storytime at 10:30 AM
