Foreword: January 1, 2018

By on

Thank you to all of our patrons and friends for making this a great year at the Black Creek Village Library.  We are on track to exceed our circulation numbers from 2016, thanks to all of you!  The higher our circulation numbers, the more money we are allotted to purchase new materials for everyone to enjoy - so keep up the good work!  We also had over 26 thousand visits to our library this year, and almost 4 thousand attendees to our programs.

Coming in 2018, we are planning to do some rearranging to make better use of our space.  One of the more immediate changes will be moving the adult audiobooks to our current paperback section in the middle of the library to give us more room for DVDs in the media area.  Our DVD collection is growing rapidly, partly due to the many great donations we’ve received.  Teen audiobooks will be shelved with the teen books, and all non-fiction audiobooks will eventually be filed in our non-fiction section.

We will also be adding a new children’s librarian to our staff in 2018.  While no decision has yet been made, the deadline for applications has passed, so hopefully we can all look forward to a new face in the near future.

Don’t forget to make a self-portrait while you’re here for our January hallway project and to check out our Kid Reader of the Month.  Our feature this month is “I can’t remember the title, but the cover was blue!”  We have a great selection of blue books displayed across from the circulation desk.  Maybe you’ll be reunited with one of your old favorites!

We also want to remind everyone that when the Seymour Area School District schools are closed due to weather, we are also closed, so please make sure to call before you make the trip if you’re not sure.  All items will be backdated to our last open day when we check them in, so items will not be late.

Have a great week, everyone, and a happy New Year!
