Foreword: August 1, 2019

Welcome to August! We hope you have had an amazing summer so far.

We are getting into our last few weeks of summer reading here at the library, so do not forget to turn in all task sheets by August 17th.

If you have not already heard, there will be an electronics recycling event this Saturday, August 3rd at the Wastewater Treatment Plant in Black Creek. Items will be accepted from 9am to 12pm. Many items are accepted for free! For a list of items that are accepted with a fee, see the Village of Black Creek website or the lists posted at the library.

Wednesday, August 7th is our Back-To-School Bag Design program.  Please register ahead of time. The program starts at 1pm for our younger kids and 2:45pm for teens. On Friday, Ms Kelly is back to teach us about constellations at 2:30pm!

Our new table topic this month asks you what cartoon character you would be and why. For our hallway project, we have challenged participants to create their own planet and give it a unique name!

Please consider donating much-needed school supplies to our area students. We are once again a drop-off site for Community 2000’s annual school supplies drive. From now until August 11th you can bring in your donated items and place them in the bin across from the Circulation desk!

We’re also excited about our lineup of events for the rest of the summer.  Stop in to pick up a copy of the calendar, or view/print the PDF version right from our website: http://www.blackcreeklibrary.org/printable-summer-2019-library-calendar-and-events.

Foreword: July 18, 2019

On July 20, 1969 Apollo 11’s crew landed on the surface of the moon. It is only a little over eight years since then President John F. Kennedy issued a charge for America to put a man on the moon by the decade’s end. Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were those Americans. They left behind a plaque that reads: "Here men from the planet Earth first set foot upon the moon. July 1969 A.D. We came in peace for all mankind."

Guest teacher Kelly Lerum is back tomorrow for a special program, tailored for elementary and older kids, about the moon and the importance of Apollo 11’s historic milestone. We will also be hearing about local teenager Tyler Thomas and his experience at space camp! Plus, try out some astronaut food! This program is 1-3pm on Friday, July 19th.

Are you interested in learning more about space travel? Check out our display of items on this topic in our display area located opposite our circulation desk. The display will be up through the month of July.

Happy Independence Day from all of us at the Black Creek Village Library! We will be closed for the Fourth of July but will re-open on Friday, July 5th!

You only have two more weeks to complete your coloring sheets, rocket ships & space sticks before voting begins! Please return these to the library by Saturday, July 13th.

Have you ever heard of the genre Gentle Reads? A Gentle Read is defined as book containing little or no violence or explicit content. Often, they are described as: “feel-good” or “heartwarming.” Think of it as the literary equivalent of comfort food! This particular genre has been gaining popularity in recent years and we are highlighting some library-owned titles (as well as related films) in our display area.

We’re also excited about our lineup of events for the rest of the summer.  Stop in to pick up a copy of the calendar, or view/print the PDF version right from our website: http://www.blackcreeklibrary.org/printable-summer-2019-library-calendar-and-events.
