November is Picture Book Month! Picture books are not just for young children. Everyone can enjoy the whimsy and artistry of picture books! Stop by the Black Creek Village Library and check out a favorite picture book from your youth, or check out some of the picture book titles you may not have heard of.  We have many titles to choose from and all are such fun to read!

We want to congratulate Mary Lemke for winning the Halloween basket raffle! We hope you and your family enjoy the basket of goodies!

The Friends of the Black Creek Village Library are offering a raffle basket in honor of Veterans Day! Tickets are $.25 each or 5 for $1.00. The winner of the basket will be drawn on November 18th.  

We are looking for a Substitute Library Clerk to work 1 to 3 Fridays and 1 to 2 Saturdays a month, as well as during the week, as needed. If you are interested, you can pick up an application at the Library or print one from our website. Applications are due on November 11th by 4:00PM.

I know it’s a bit early to talk about December, but I wanted to let everyone know that we will be hosting a Cookie Exchange on December 13th from 5:30PM to 7:00. This is a wonderful way to have a variety of cookies for the holidays without having to make all of them all yourself. We are asking that participants bring 3 dozen cookies to exchange with others. Along with the cookies we will have crafts for the kids to do, and hot cocoa for all! If you are interested in attending 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.

Happy Halloween to everyone from the Black Creek Village Library! We hope you have a wonderful day filled with treats and no tricks! Kids can trick or treat here at the library - we have treats!

Everyone had such a wonderful time at our Halloween party last Friday! Eva and Miss Krista loved seeing all the different costumes that the kids were wearing and had such a great time with everyone. Everyone loved having their picture taken with our special guests. Eva, Miss Krista, and all the kids want to say thank you to our special guests for coming to the Black Creek Village Library! 

The Black Creek Village library wants to say thank you to the Black Creek Business Association for providing all the great snacks for the party! We also want to thank the Black Creek Advancement Association for making it possible for our special guests to come to come to the party! Both groups helped provide a wonderful time for the youth of Black Creek!

We have our November drop-in activity all set up and ready to go. You can come in anytime during the month of November and make a hand turkey to display in our lobby! You can also fill in what your favorite Thanksgiving food is for our Table Topic area while you are here. There is always something fun at the library to do!

Just a note to our Funday Friday kids: there will be no Funday Friday this week, but we will back next week. Miss Krista originally had games scheduled for next week, but we've decided to have a LEGO day instead!
