We had a blast during our spring break here at the library! We hope the kids had as much fun as we did.  Thank you to everyone who helped bring this week together - from our teen helper to those who brought the games for the kids to play - you all helped make this week special for the kids of Black Creek!

The kids had a blast with the sand art and board games on Monday! All the kids amazed us with their cupcake decorating skills on Wednesday. We want to say thank you to Middleburg Bakery in Black Creek for making the cupcakes for us. They were really tasty! Lego Club was a blast and all the creations were wonderful. Everyone painted such wonderful pictures on Friday. You are all wonderful artists!  If you liked our spring break activities, you are going to love our summer reading program activities!

We want to send a special thank you to Magician Daryl Rogers for giving such a wonderful show on Tuesday! It was super fun and exciting! Both kids and adults were amazed by all the magic tricks, and the kid assistants are still amazed by the magic they helped perform.

As we get closer to the end of the month, we are getting excited for our April events.  We have a paranormal expert coming in April.  Chad Lewis is an author who investigates hauntings and other paranormal activities throughout the Midwest and he is coming to the Black Creek Library on April 5th at 5:30PM.

There is still plenty of time for the kids to earn tickets for the candy raffle basket. Come on in and try your hand at one of our monthly crafts and earn yourself a ticket to this fun basket. The winner will be drawn on March 31st!
