With only a handful of days left of school, it’s a great time to start thinking about summer. Our summer event calendars are out! Summer Reading sign-up begins Saturday, June 1st at the Friends of the Library booth at Family Daze, and continues here at the library starting on Monday, June 3rd. Sign-up is free, and gives you the opportunity to earn and win great prizes for reading!
Just a few fun things to look forward to – create your own bug house on Wednesday, June 12th from 1 - 2:30 pm, and from 2:45 – 4 pm, stick around to create some fun pinback buttons! Design your own, cut an image from a magazine, or bring a favorite photo to create a special memento. On Friday, June 14th, join us from 1 – 2 pm to learn about weather on the planets from Kelly Kizer Whitt, author of the picture book Solar System Forecast. Afterwards, we will be making our own solar system mobiles. This program is great for preschool and lower elementary aged children, but all ages are welcome. Sign up is preferred, so we can make sure we have enough materials for everyone. Sign up here at the library, by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling us (920) 984-3094.
We will be closed Saturday, May 25th, and Monday, May 27th for Memorial Day weekend. All items returned in the outside bins will be backdated to the last open date, so they will not be late. To place items on hold or to renew items, please visit www.infosoup.org.
Our May book club pick is Huckleberry Hill by Jennifer Beckstrand. Set in Huckleberry Hill, Wisconsin, this book is about two octogenarian Amish folks who try their hand at matchmaking. It’s the first book in the Matchmakers of Huckleberry Hill series. We will be discussing this book on Wednesday, May 29th, and there are several copies available at the circulation desk for check out. Feel free to join us for the in-person discussion here at the library at 1 pm, some or all of the online discussion questions posted throughout the day, or both! You decide! Here is the link to the online discussion: https://www.facebook.com/groups/2168740469821856/?source_id=87182937411. You can also access the discussion through the Black Creek Village Library’s Facebook page.
Black Creek Library Page Turners and Flash Friday will be taking a break for the summer. Please stay tuned for more information coming this fall.
Having legal trouble? We can help! Attorney Robert D. Sweeney from Sweeney Law Offices S.C. specializes in just about everything, and has been able to help a lot of our patrons by providing free, confidential legal advice at the Black Creek Village Library on the second Monday of every month from 5 – 6:30 pm. Time slots have been filling up quickly, so make sure to reserve yours as soon as possible.
