There are just two weeks left of Summer Reading! Summer is going by way too fast for us here at the library! We have some great activities planned for this week. We are having a fantastic summer and hope everyone else is too!

We had a great time last Saturday with Corcoran Puppets presentation of “The Three Little Pigs."  We want to say Thank you to Corcoran Puppets for coming to our library - we all really enjoyed the show and seeing the puppets.

Our Honey Tasting & Bees Wax Candle Making program is this week, Wednesday, August 9th, at 1:00PM. This is a preregistration program, and at the time of writing this article we have very few spaces left.  Stop by or give us a call at 920-984-3094 if you are interested in attending, and if we still have spots available, we can get you registered!

Take a break from the summer heat and join us on Saturday, August 12th, at 2:00PM as the N.E.W Zoo’s Zoomobile will be arriving at the library with some great animals to see and share!

If you have your July game board you can still bring it in to be included in the prize drawing. We have August game boards available to be picked up at any time.

We had so much fun last week with Smokey’s Birthday, learning balloon twisting, and meeting author, Elise Moser. We want to thank Elise Moser for visiting our library to talk about her book on recycling, and to Jason Love for showing us how to make great balloon animals. We also want to send out a huge thank you to the Friends of the Black Creek Village Library for providing the refreshments and the cookie supplies for us to decorate for Smokey’s birthday! They were delicious!

Please take note that Paws to Read is cancelled for Monday (July 10th), but don’t worry, it will be back at its scheduled time next Monday.  See you then! If you are interested in reading to Tonka, you can sign up at the library or give us a call at 920-984-3094 to see what time slots we have available!

Don’t forget to come to the library on Wednesday, July 12th, for our crafting afternoon. We will have Crafting with Beads and Sticks for everyone starting at 1:00pm and will transition into teen crafting at 2:30.

There are still spots remaining for our programs that have preregistration. If you are interested in the Roller Coaster making (July 19th), the Smash Bash (July 26th), and the Honey Tasting & Beeswax candle making (August 9th), you can sign up at the library or give us a call.

We have had many questions about why books have to be checked out from the library in order to count for our Summer Reading Program. Here is the simple answer: our physical circulation (items checked out from our library) is a large part of determining how much money we are given each year to fund programs like Summer Reading, to provide new materials for you to check out, and to keep our library maintained and properly staffed.  This is why we ask that the books you use for our summer reading program come from the library.

This Week’s Programming Schedule:

Wednesday, July 12. Craft with Beads and Sticks 1:00PM – 2:30PM.
Wednesday, July 12. Teen Craft 2:30PM – 4:00PM.
Friday, July 14. Baby Toddler Storytime 10:15AM – 10:30AM.
