September was a fun month for the library! During the month we asked the kids what superhero power they would want and we learned that most of the kids would like to have invisibility as their power! We also asked them to make us superhero masks and we displayed their awesome designs in our hallway! For October we are asking the kids to tell us their favorite Halloween costume and we are having them design a candy wrapper to be displayed in the hallway.

This is the week when the Fox Valley Herp Club comes to the library! On Saturday October 7 at 2:00PM the Fox Valley Herp Club will be here to show and teach us about some of their reptiles. Plus, we will be allowed to touch some of reptiles they bring. So, if you ever wanted to get up close with a reptile, now’s your chance! This program is for all ages.

The Friends of the Black Creek village Library has their fall raffle basket at the library. It has many great goodies in it, so come to the library and take a look! Tickets are $.25 each or 5 for $1.00.

We are still collecting donations for the Friends of the Library book and bake sale! If you have any books, movies (VHS or DVD), and music that you would like to donate, you can bring them to the library anytime. The sale will take place October 20 – 21 during library hours.
