We hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend and a smooth transition to the school year. In September, we’re ushering in a few changes to the library. We now have a “New to Us” display on the side of the New Arrivals shelf in the center of the library. This will give us a way to differentiate between the books that were recently published and “new” in general, and books that are a little older but still new to our library and patrons.
One of our newer book displays across from the circulation desk will continue to house books for America Reads through October, but the other side is changing and in honor of Banned Books Week, will now display banned and challenged books. These are books that have been banned and/or challenged for a number of reasons, including language, violence, sexual references or content, religious views, political content, promotion of questionable morals, slavery, abuse of animals and/or humans, racial stereotypes, etc. We won’t be able to fit all of them on our shelf, but we do have a list available if anyone wants to check out what else is on the list or what the reason is for being banned.
Also in September, we have a new table topic (Reading helps me: ____), a new hallway project (color and cut out a honeybee for National Honeybee Month,) and a fun back-to-school scavenger hunt! Miss Krista has hidden 11 presidents around the library. Find and identify all of them to win a prize.
For kids looking for a new book or series to read, we now have several lists of read-a-likes and popular books and series at the start of the juvenile fiction section. Any books on the list that are not in our library can be ordered and will be available for pick up in just a few days.
Great news! It is now possible for patrons to print wirelessly from a smartphone or laptop at the Black Creek Library. Simply download the free Princh app on your smart phone or tablet or go to print.princh.com on your laptop. This software will also give patrons the option to pay for printing and copies with a credit card.
Don’t forget, the Black Creek Library Page Turners will begin meeting again September 26th at 1 pm! 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.

He specializes in general litigation, real estate law, debtor/creditor, employer/employee relations, business law, estate planning, municipal law, family law, criminal/traffic, and personal injury. He will be providing free, confidential legal advice the second Monday of every month from 5 – 6:30 pm.
