With school starting again next week comes the return of Flash Fridays! Flash Fridays will now be 3:30 – 5:00 pm to accommodate Black Creek School’s time change. Here is the 2018-2019 line-up:
- 1st Friday of the month – Lego Fun
- 2nd Friday of the month – Cartoons and Coloring
- 3rd Friday of the month – Craft Day
- 4th Friday of the month – Game Day (the Friends of the Black Creek Village Library have generously donated several new games, so we have a fun new collection!)
- 5th Friday – Librarian’s Choice
Don’t forget, the Black Creek Library Page Turners will begin meeting again September 26th! In-person meetings will be the last Wednesday of the month at 1 pm, and online discussion will be ongoing throughout the month. To join the online discussion, go to https://www.facebook.com/groups/2168740469821856/?source_id=87182937411. Our first book will be If the Creek Don’t Rise by Leah Weiss, and we have several copies available at the circulation desk.
Also, on September 26, at 6 pm, join us as we welcome Chad Lewis for his presentation of Bizarre History of Wisconsin: Strange Stories from Our Past. This presentation will showcase over 100 bizarre newspaper stories from Wisconsin that have not been seen in over 100 years. These unbelievable stories were not lost – they were simply hidden. This program provides a time portal back to the early days of the state when it was filled with strange deaths, ghosts, sea serpents, peculiar people, medical anomalies, oddities, psychic phenomena, and UFOs. This will change the way you view the good old days of Wisconsin.
For over two decades, Chad Lewis has traveled the back roads of the world in search of the strange and the unusual. From tracking vampires in Transylvania, and searching for the elusive monster of Loch Ness, to trailing the dangerous Tata Duende through remote villages of Belize, and searching for ghosts in Ireland’s castles, Chad has scoured the earth in search of the paranormal. Chad has been featured on the Discovery Channel’s A Haunting, William Shatner’s Weird or What, ABC’s World’s Scariest Places, Monsters and Mysteries of America, along with being a frequent contributor to Ripley’s Believe it or Not Radio. With a Master’s Degree in Psychology, Chad has authored over 20 books on the supernatural, and extensively lectures on his fascinating findings.
