With summer on the horizon, our week consists of kids coming to the library for field trips and us going to talk to students about the Summer Reading Program! Can a field trip to the library be any cooler? From getting to check out awesome books to enjoying crafts and stories, we are big fans of having lots and lots of kids use our library!

This week, there is a Friends of BCVL meeting at 6:30 PM here at the library. This amazing group of volunteers is always looking for new members, so stop on by and meeting the friendliest people in town! Also, I am hosting the 3rd Thursday Page Turners at 1:00 PM this week and we will be reading  "Heroes are my Weakness," one of my favorite romantic suspense books. It is a quick read, so if you want to come and pick up a copy before Thursday, there is still time!

Kids, come on down for storytime on Friday at 10:30 for Baby/Toddler Storytime and 10:45 for Preschool Storytime. Don't forget about Library After School Time on Friday with Miss Krista!

The library will be closed on Saturday, May 23 and Monday, May 25 for Memorial Day.

Hours this week:

Monday 10AM-8PM
Tuesday 10AM-8PM
Wednesday 10AM-8PM
Thursday 10AM-8PM

We recently purchased an enormous collection of classic movies for a really inexpensive price. Essentially, we got timeless pieces of cinema on a dime! It was an amazing purchase and it turns out that people in our neighborhood absolutely adore classic films! These movies are flying off the shelves. We also appreciate our new releases, of course, but sometimes taking it back a few decades to the black and white movies makes the viewing especially enjoyable.

Our Summer Reading Calendar is officially set, and we have movie parties scheduled! Stop on by for a calendar today.

BCVL is turning back time! Join us on Fridays for Baby/Toddler Storytime at 10:30 AM and Preschool Storytime at 11, just like it used to be! Jackie and friends will have fun with stories, songs, puppets, and crafts while also learning about the world around us. Everyone is welcome!

Did you know? Library After School Time (LAST) meets every Friday at 3:30 at the library. It is for school-aged kids and includes Lego time, crafts, snacks, and fun! Thanks to the Friends of the Black Creek Village Library, the kids now have SnapCircuits to play with, an educational game that allows kids to build circuits and make cool inventions!

Another wonderfully generous donation was $100.00 by the Wednesday Afternoon Cardplayers, a group of gentlemen who play cards in the basement of BCVL. We are so grateful for our wonderful community members!

Don’t forget to sign up for a spot with Mark Moran, famous antique appraiser, who will be visiting the Black Creek Village Library on Thursday, May 28, 2015, from 5-8PM. You can stop by or call the library at (920) 984-3094 to reserve your spot for only $5. Mark will tell you if your beloved heirloom is worth a million!

 

The staff are such an important part of Black Creek Village Library, and on evenings during the week, perhaps you have seen a new face! Krista Knapp joined us in March and has been a splendid addition to our team. Not only does she have a passion for libraries, but her enthusiasm is fantastic as well! She has been the creator of so many fun additions to our library, including coming up with the Library Fortune Teller. Kids can come to the library and pick their fortune out of the crystal ball. These fortunes range from reading a Boxcar Children book to exploring the nonfiction section. Once they complete their fortune, they get rewarded with extra computer time! Come on down to meet Krista today!

 

Events this week:

Thursday: Knitting at 6PM

Black Creek Village Library is so excited for the Friends of BCVL Book and Bake Sale. This is the most wonderful time of the year! Not only do we get to enjoy delicious treats, but we get to buy loads of books that are either discarded from the library or donated by generous community members throughout the year. The Book and Bake Sale is taking place Monday, April 27, 2015, through Saturday, May 2nd, 2015, during our normal library hours int the Community Room across from the Library. I hope you can stop by for this fun event!

If you visit our website, you might notice that we have a new blog up and running! It is called "Three Hundred Pages" and it is by Kiley Couillard, who started at BCVL three years ago as the Evening Library Services Specialist and just recently was promoted to the Technical Services Specialist, which is a daytime position. Many of you know Kiley and have been able to talk with her about books and more  throughout the years. This blog is a way for her to show off her awesome writing skills while talking about books, movies, the library, life, and more! I encourage you all to check it out. Kiley is an extremely intelligent and hard-working staff member, and we don't know what we would do without her. Next time you see Kiley, be sure to thank her for all she does!
