First of all we want to send a huge Thank You to Retired US Marshal Pat Amerson for coming to the library to talk about what it takes to investigate and solve crimes last Wednesday. Everyone really enjoyed it and we learned a lot!

This Saturday August 13th from 1:00 – 2:00 we will be hosting the NEW Zoo as they bring the ZooMobile to the Black Creek Village Library!  Come out and see just what animals they bring. It is going to be a wonderful time as we get to learn about and experience some of the wonderful animals the NEW zoo has to offer!

We still have spots available for the antique appraiser Mark Moran.  He will be here August 20th from 5:00PM – 8:00. Come in and reserve your spot today!

We have a wonderful Raffle Basket by the Friend of the Library! To celebrate the Olympics the friends have put together a wonderful prize basket. The exciting part is that every patron receives one free guess on how many gold Medals the USA will bring home! If you want to make additional guesses they are $.25 for one guess or 5 guesses for $1.00. Guesses can be made until August 12, 2016. Come in and see the basket of goodies! If more than one person selects the winning number the winner will be drawn from all correct guesses.

A sneak peek to next month’s adult programming. We will be learning how to make cornhusk dolls on September 15 at 5:30PM. This is a free event, and we are requiring registration.  We have 32 spots available that will be filled on a first come first serve basis.

On Wednesday, we got to spend some time with Fang from the Timber Rattlers, who stopped in to say hi and celebrate the start of summer.

Friday was the Lego Makers Challenge during Friday FunDay.  If you missed this one, don’t worry; there is another one coming up July 15th!
