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.

Black Creek Village Library would like to wish everyone happy holidays! There is so much to do in the area during the wintertime, from enjoying outdoor sportsmanship, to ringing bells for local charities, to spending time inside with family and friends curled up with a good book or a cheesy holiday film. This holiday season, we are going to be at the Library, enjoying the company of our neighbors and doing good deeds!

On Thursday, December 10,  at 5:30 PM, we will be hosting our annual Ornament Night festivities! Join us for treats and camaraderie as we make ornaments for your Christmas tree, Menorah, rearview mirror, or just for fun! We will have activities for all ages. Please RSVP by December 1st.

We are proud to sponsor a giving tree this holiday season. Stop by the Library before December 23rd to get your hands on a wish tag from our holiday tree. These tags will have items that the residents of Good Shepherd would love to have for Christmas. Want to shop ahead? Some items are: any Wisconsin sports teams apparel. socks, body spray, lotion, jewelry, Seroogys Candy Bars (red wrapper), Dove dark chocolate candy, sweat pants for me (1x), long sleeve t-shirts, women's sweatshirt (medium), men's flannel shirts (large), men's lounge pants (large). We are happy to accept any of these items plus anything else you would like to contribute to those who may be spending the holidays alone this year.

Black Creek Village Library is proud and blessed to have such amazing neighbors!
