Foreword August 9, 2021

As the new library director, I hope this is a situation where better late than never applies and you will allow me to introduce myself. My name is Rachel Hitt, and it’s been a pleasure meeting you at the library. I’m a Wisconsin native and former teacher (though that was a while ago), and I appreciate the way working in a library lets me tap into the elements of teaching that I enjoyed. I enjoy reading, naturally, and most of my reading lately has been courtesy of audiobooks. (I even have favorite narrators!) I enjoy reading a wide range of books and try to read a variety of books and genres across all age groups. When I’m not reading you may find me in my vegetable garden (listening to audiobooks as I work), though I did take the plunge with a flowerbed this year. I also enjoy baking, crochet, and spending time with family and friends.

We’re keeping a watchful eye on the COVID-19 case rates and the latest public health recommendations. We’d like to be sure we’re doing our part to protect public health as we serve our community, and we appreciate your flexibility and support.

Kids may not quite be ready to start thinking about school, but a new school year is right around the corner. The Black Creek Village Library is serving as a collection point for the 16th Annual Back-to-School Drive sponsored by Community 2000. The school supplies most urgently needed are listed on the Facebook page of Community 2000 – Seymour. Donations will be accepted through August 23.

Our current hours are:

M-Th: 9am-7pm

Friday: 9am-5pm

Saturday: 9am-2pm
