As the summer comes to an end, we are celebrating all of our readers! If you participated in the Summer Reading Program, you are invited to a party! On Thursday, August 13, from 5-7 PM, we will be hosting magicians and facepainters to celebrate your awesome reading successes. Then, the children, teens and adults who read the most books out of everyone this summer will be announced and grand prizes will be distributed! If you didn't read the most, don't fret, you still get a surprise just for reading at all! Storytime will continue each Friday even though the Reading Program will conclude.

I would like to take a minute to reflect on the fantastic leaders that we have here at Black Creek Village Library. Our Library Board of Trustees is made up of five Village residents who have a passion for the Library and the community! The members of our Library Board are as follows: President Melanie Stadler, Vice President Wanda Taylor, Secretary and School District Representative Lisa St. John, Marge Doty, and Jacob Severson. We invite guests! Everyone and anyone is more than welcome to attend our meetings, which are regularly scheduled for the first Wednesday of the month at 6:30 PM at the Black Creek Village Library.

June is half over this week, if you can believe it! We are celebrating summer at the library, with many people of all ages signed up for our summer reading program. If you haven't signed up yet, don't worry--you have until August to do so! There are some great prizes up for grabs.

This week, Jackie and friends are getting their fitness splurge on with the Walkie Talkies ladies' walking group on Wednesday at 9AM. On Thursday at 1PM, the Third Thursday Page Turners will be reading rock icon Patti Smith's autobiography, "Just Kids." You still have time to pick up your copy at BCVL and come! It is always a great time with a lovely group of people.

Storytime commences at 10:30 on Friday for babies and toddlers and at 11 for preschoolers. We recommend getting to the library a little early for this as there is always so much to do! Also, school-aged kids can join us on Friday at 1:00 for crafts, games, and more during Friday Funday. 

If you have ever been interested in joining the Friends of the Black Creek Library, you are in luck! Their monthly meeting is this Thursday night at 6:30 PM.
