Today we find ourselves in September. We can hardly believe that the summer is just about gone; school is back in session, and the days are getting shorter. Yet we are getting a lot of great activities ready for this upcoming fall season!

Remember, we are closed today for Labor Day, but will be open at our regular time tomorrow.

There is just a little over a week left to sign up for our FREE event on how to make Cornhusk dolls! On Thursday September 15 at 5:30PM we will be hosting a representative from the Oneida Nation Museum to learn about the background and artistry of cornhusk dolls.  We will even be making our own!  Seating is very limited, so registration is required. You can sign up in person, by phone at 920-984-3094, or by email at bcl@mail.owls.lib.wi.us. Don’t delay, sign up today for this very unique opportunity!

Our friends of the Library have announced their next “Booked for Dinner” event! On October 1st they will be having a fabulous dinner and discussing the novel “Unwind” by Neal Shusterman. For just a $20 donation to the Friends of the Black Creek Library you will be able to reserve your seat to this grand event.  If you are interesting in attending you must RSVP at the Black Creek Village Library by September 24th.  We do have copies of the book on hand for you to borrow. If you have any questions about the event or would like to see the dinner menu, stop by the library today!

It has been an exciting summer here at the Black Creek Village Library! Last week the NEW Zoo brought the Zoomobile to the library and we got to meet some fascinating animals including Penny the hedgehog! We had a lot of fun petting and learning about the animals, and we want to send out a huge thank you to the NEW Zoo for letting us get up close and personal with a few of their amazing animals!

Also, our fantastic patrons blew our reading goal out of the water TWICE! As summer comes to a close we will be celebrating all of our wonderful readers at our End of Summer Party on Thursday 8/25.

First of all we want to send a huge Thank You to Retired US Marshal Pat Amerson for coming to the library to talk about what it takes to investigate and solve crimes last Wednesday. Everyone really enjoyed it and we learned a lot!

This Saturday August 13th from 1:00 – 2:00 we will be hosting the NEW Zoo as they bring the ZooMobile to the Black Creek Village Library!  Come out and see just what animals they bring. It is going to be a wonderful time as we get to learn about and experience some of the wonderful animals the NEW zoo has to offer!

We have a wonderful Raffle Basket by the Friend of the Library! To celebrate the Olympics the friends have put together a wonderful prize basket.

If you want to make additional guesses they are $.25 for one guess or 5 guesses for $1.00. Guesses can be made until August 12, 2016. Come in and see the basket of goodies! If more than one person selects the winning number the winner will be drawn from all correct guesses.
