The Friends of the Black Creek Village Library are prepping for their book sale! They will be holding their book sale on February 24th and 25th during the library’s normal business hours. Until then, they are taking donations for the sale.  If you are looking at clearing out some books, DVDs, VHS tapes, or CDs, we will be happy to take your donation for the sale. You can drop off your items during our normal business hours. 

The Friends of the Black Creek Village library are having a Valentine’s Day Raffle basket here at the library! Come to the library to see all the great items included in the basket! Tickets are $.25 each or 5 tickets for $1.00. The winner will be drawn on Valentine’s Day. All money received goes to help with programming and supplies for library programs!

Thank you to the UW Extension for coming to the library for the money management workshop. Everyone found it greatly informative and we learned a lot! We hope to plan more great events with the UW Extension in the future.

We are helping with a most important program developed by Two Men and a Truck. Each year, Two Men and a Truck collect items for local women’s shelters that help women and children who are victims of abuse or homelessness. The program is called Movers for Moms, and they collect a variety of items from hygiene products to books, pillows etc. and will bring them to the shelters this Mother’s Day weekend. The program does not officially start until the last week of March, however we will be accepting donations now for this great cause. You can bring items to the Black Creek Village Library during our normal business hours.

We have some super exciting plans coming up for spring break! Stay tuned! Can’t wait to find out? Check out our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/blackcreekvillagelibrary today!

We are always looking for idea and suggestions for programs to provide for you at your library.

In January we asked the kids to make ice skates for our hallway as part of National Skate Appreciation Month. Everyone did such a nice job decorating their skate.
