Our wonderful friends of the Black Creek Village Library have started an exciting new fund raising opportunity! The Black Creek Village Library friends in conjunction with Kwik Trip Stores are hosting a Milk Moola fund raising program. Just bring your caps or bag tops from Kwik Trip Nature’s Touch products to the drop box in the library and Kwik trip will give the Friends of the Library 5 cents for each one donated. Just look for the Milk Moola logo on the cap or bag top. All money raised will go to help the Friends buy new materials and fund programs here at the Black Creek Library!

Also this week, we are having a sale on our delightful Black Creek Library mugs. You can purchase one for the sale price of $8.00 (regularly $10.00) and each additional mug purchased is only $5.00! This has been a popular sale so far; so hurry in and get yours before they are gone.  All money will help purchase new materials for the library!

One final note for this week.  This is that time of year when our weather gets frigidly cold and snow can blanket us in the blink of an eye.  Therefore, here is our winter closing policy. If schools are closed due to bad weather conditions, we will also be closed.
