We want to thank everyone that attended the “What Bullying Really Means” event last Thursday. It’s great to know we live in such a supportive community, and that we will come together for the children of Black Creek. We also want to thank the Community Family Resource Center and all the local experts for donating their time to participate in the event. It would not have been possible to bring this event to the community without you!

Friday, October 28, is the Black Creek Village Library’s Halloween party! From 3:15PM to 5:00 come to the library and have some fun treats and do some crafts. Then from 3:30PM to 4:30 you can have your picture taken with our guests! They are from the dark side of a galaxy far, far away! We want everyone to come out and have some fun, so our party will not be spooky or scary for little ones. Costumes are not required, but are encouraged!  We hope to see you there!

Our October “drop-in” activity is in full swing and this month we are doing Jack-O-Lanterns! If you have not yet completed one you have just one week left to complete your pumpkin drawing and receive a prize! We are loving all the Jack-O-Lanterns done so far.

We are now on week four of our Facebook Trivial Pursuit Challenge. Today through Saturday give us your answers to this week’s trivia posted on our Facebook page. Each correct answer is worth $.10 off of late fees. Plus, the person with the most correct answers will win our grand prize!

We want to thank everyone who came in and colored a cat - you all did a wonderful job! This month we are asking everyone to color a Jack-o-Lantern for the hallway, so stop by the library to decorate one! Finished Jack-o-Lanterns will be posted for everyone to enjoy!

Thank you to the Davidson Law Office and the Estate Planning Group for coming to the library last Wednesday to answer our questions about legal life planning. Everyone found it extremely informative and we learned about many of the resources we can utilize while planning for the future.

For the month of October we are having a Facebook contest! Each Monday we will post a new Trivial Pursuit game card to our Facebook page.  Then you will have that week (Monday – Saturday) to give us your answers to the week’s current questions.

At the end of the month the person with the most correct answers will win our grand prize! Check out our Facebook page for the complete details. Our first question was posted today (October 3).
