It's hard to believe that today, August 21, is the last day of our Summer Reading Program. You do have until noon to bring in your August game boards, review sheets, and pages read sheets to have them included in today’s grand prize drawing. We hope you enjoyed this year as much as we have! To celebrate the last day of our reading program, we are having a Solar Eclipse party from 1:00PM to 2:00 today! 

We will have solar eclipse glasses available for you to use at our party. However, we only have a limited supply, so it will be first come-first served. We will open the doors for the eclipse viewing at 12:30PM. The moon will start moving in front of the sun around noon with the max coverage of the sun at 1:15PM. We will have NASA’s solar eclipse online streaming event playing, for anyone that is interested in watching it. We will draw the Summer Reading grand prize winners around 1:45PM. We also will draw the kid’s raffle basket winner and announce the winners of the coloring contest, along with many other giveaways.

On Wednesday, we will make our very own pin back buttons! Stop by the library anytime between 1:00PM at 2:30PM and make up to 5 pinback buttons of your own, using your own artwork, or choose a picture from our stack of magazines.  On Friday, August 25th, we will have our Free Build Friday from 2:30PM to 4:30PM. Come and play with blocks, Legos, and more!

The Friends of the Black Creek Village Library are asking for book donations for their fall book sale. If you have any books that you would like to donate to the library for the book sale, you can drop them off anytime.
