The Black Creek Village Library is closed Monday, May 29 for the observance of Memorial Day. We hope that everyone is having a nice Memorial Day with family and friends. All of us at the Black Creek Village Library are forever grateful for all the men and women who served our country to protect our freedoms and our homeland.  We are truly the home of the free because of the brave. Thank you to all service men and women for your service! 

On these last few days of May we cannot help but be excited for summer and the warmer weather! June will be here in in a blink of the eye and that means the start of many fun activities at the library!  Our Summer Reading Program kicks off on June 12th, and we have many great activities and programs for the kids each week all summer. Stop by the library and pick up a calendar or visit our website at www.blackcreeklibrary.org to see what is happening each week.  All our programs are free of charge and you do not need to be signed up for the Summer Reading Program to participate in any of our activities.

Family Daze is this Saturday, June 3rd! If you haven’t already heard the buzz, this year’s Family Daze theme is “Medieval Times”.  With so much to see and do it is always a great time for the entire family! Festivities begin at 11:00AM with the annual Family Daze parade followed by many fun events at South Park! This year’s event features a Magician, the Dilly Bar eating contest sponsored by Seymour Dairy Queen, and many exciting activities for kids to do and explore.

We have really new and exciting items for you to check out at our library! They are picture books on DVD!  The picture book is narrated while showing the page on the screen with animation. You can play it with or without the words on the screen. They are a great way to help kids work on reading, and they are really fun to watch for both kids and adults! Stop by today and check out our ever growing selection of picture books on DVD.
