Here we are at the close of November, and with it we have a new hallway project for the kids. In November, we asked the kids to make us hand turkeys and they sure did! Our hallway looks awesome with a full flock of turkeys! Besides the holidays, December is also National Tie Month, so, for December, we will be filling our hallway with colorful neckties. Come in and color your own tie and help us fill our hallway! You will also receive a prize.

On December 13th from 5:30PM to 7:00 we will be hosting our first ever Cookie Exchange! We just ask that you bring 3 dozen treats to exchange with others. All treats are welcome, even store bought! We will also have crafts and activities for the kids and hot cocoa for everyone! You can RSVP by December 7th at the Black Creek Village Library, call us at 920-984-3094, or email us at bcl@mail.owls.lib.wi.us.

Thanksgiving is this Thursday! We will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, but we will be open our normal business hours on Friday November 25th.

We are having a Black Friday special here at the Black Creek Village Library. On Friday November 25th, we will be doing half price late fees! Not only that, but ALL the money received for late fees that day will be donated to the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle campaign.  This is a great way to get rid of those lingering late fees and help a great cause! This offer will only be available during library hours on Friday November 25th and is only for late fees.

Do you have a talent for sweets? Are you a wiz at making brownies or bars? Love to make cookies? Or is your specialty cake pops? We are having a Cookie Exchange on December 13th from 5:30PM to 7:00. We just ask that you bring 3 dozen treats to exchange with others. We will also have crafts for the kids. All treats are welcome, even store bought! You can RSVP in person by December 4th at the Black Creek Village Library, call us at 920-984-3094, or email us at bcl@mail.owls.lib.wi.us.

We are looking into starting a documentary film club. We would meet once a month to watch a documentary film and have a short discussion afterwards.  If you are interested in participating, please let us know. We are interested in finding out what days and times would work best for our patrons. You can clip out the slip and drop it off at the library or you can connect with us through email at bcl@mail.owls.lib.wi.us or by telephone at 920-984-3094. We hope to hear from you soon!

This is the time of year when we can spend hours in the car traveling to see family and friends. The library has a great way to make time spent in the car more enjoyable whether you are alone or with others. Audiobooks! Yes, audiobooks! We have many fantastic audiobook titles here for you to check out. From children to adult titles there is something for everyone! Plus, audiobooks have a 28 day checkout period, the same amount of time as books. So, there is no need to feel that rush to get that book listened too. Plus, audiobooks are not just for car trips, they are also wonderful to listen to when you are doing any activity where reading a book might be difficult to do at the same time.

There are also many benefits to listening to audiobooks. Did you know that most of what we learn we learn by listening? Listening to audiobook can help improve reading comprehension, expand vocabulary, and increase our motivation. Children who listen to audiobooks can comprehend two grade levels above their reading level, and audiobooks can help promote reading recall.  Come in and check out our selection of audiobooks today. We are always happy to help you find a new favorite!

We will be drawing the Friends of the Black Creek Village Library’s raffle basket in honor of Veterans Day on Friday. So, there is still time to come in and get some tickets. Tickets are $.25 each or 5 for $1.00.

We will be having a Cookie Exchange on December 13th from 5:30PM to 7:00. We are asking that participants bring 3 dozen cookies to exchange with others.
