We had a wonderful patron donate this super fun rocking chair for the little kids! It is in our picture book area waiting for little ones to come and read! We want to thank the donor for being a super friend and supporter of the library! It is a great addition to that area, and the kids absolutely love the rocking chair!

We had a wonderful discussion about the book “Murder Tightly Knit” by Vannetta Chapman during our Thursdays Page Turners group. If you are interested in joining us we are reading “Murder Simply Baked” by Vannetta Chapman next.

Everyone here at Black Creek Village Library hopes you had a fantastic Easter!

Last week we told you that our April’s Thursday Page Turners book would be “The Second Time Around” By Mary Higgins Clark.  However, we have changed our minds and have decided to read a wonderful Amish mystery by Vannetta Chapman called “Murder Tightly Knit”. There are books here for you to borrow in the library. If you have already read this great book we would love for you to come too! On the other hand, if you would just like to come and just sit in with the group you are more than welcome. We talk about many topics during our hour together.  Our next meeting is Thursday April 21st. We truly hope to see you then!

Just in time for spring our Friends of the Library have a spring basket of goodies to give away! Come in and take a look at all the items. Tickets are only $.25 each or 5 for $1.00. We are drawing the winner on Friday April 22.

April is right around the corner! We are super excited to announce that a fantastic local author, Susan Manzke, will be visiting the Black Creek Village Library on April 14th at 6:30 PM to discuss her books and the ins and outs of being an author. We hope you can join us!
