April is going to be a wonderful month here at the library! Not only are we celebrating National Library Week the 13th through the 18th, but we are also having many exciting events. The Friends of the Black Creek Library book sale will be the entire week of April 27th. You can come in and have a chance to purchase books and VHSs, all benefitting the Friends!
For National Library Week, children 8 and under are invited to participate in a coloring contest for a chance to win a free meal from Culver’s! Stop by anytime the 13th through the 18th to participate.
The book for the 3rd Thursday Page Turners, our lovely book club, is Water for Elephants this month. It tells the story of an aspiring veterinarian who joins the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth and tells a story of intrigue, romance, and secrets. Join us Thursday, April 16th at 1:00 PM for coffee and conversation about this book! You can pick up your copy here at the library.
Storytime with Katie is a little different than what you may have been used to in the past. We like to shake things up here at BCVL! Storytime is now for all ages, including babies, toddlers, and school-aged kids (not to mention their grownups!) and will begin at 10:30 AM each Friday. Katie includes content that appeals to children of every developmental stage. Everyone is welcome!
We also have big, exciting news for you! On Thursday, May 28th at 5:00 PM, famed antique appraiser Mark Moran will be coming to the library to explain the value of YOUR beloved antiques. Have a cool piece of art or an old watch that you think might be worth something? Come on down and have it appraised! There are a limited amount of spots available between 5 and 8PM, so call us or stop by the library to reserve your spot. “Antiques Roadshow” meets Black Creek, and it only costs $5.00 to have your item looked at! All proceeds will be going towards a new rug for the tweens and teen area!
