Foreword: September 13, 2018

By on

Reading isn’t just a big deal in the summer.  Studies show that even during the school year, it’s important for kids to read at home as well as in school.  Former Wisconsin First Lady, Jessica Doyle, created Read On Wisconsin, and since 2011, it has been administered by the CCBC (Cooperative Children’s Book Center.)  This program highlights a great selection of quality books for children and teens from birth through high school.  The complete list of 2018-2019 titles can be found here: http://readon.education.wisc.edu/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/Read-On-Wisconsin-2018-2019.pdf.  To check out the monthly lists, or lists from previous years, those can be found here: http://readon.education.wisc.edu/.

We also have several lists of read-a-likes and popular books and series at the start of the juvenile fiction section.  Any books on the list that are not currently in our library can be ordered and will be available for pick up in just a few days.

Great news!  It is now possible for patrons to print wirelessly from a smartphone or laptop at the Black Creek Library.  Simply download the free Princh app on your smart phone or tablet or go to print.princh.com on your laptop.  This software will also give patrons the option to pay for printing and copies with a credit card. 

Don’t forget, the Black Creek Library Page Turners will begin meeting again September 26th at 1 pm!  Online discussion will be ongoing throughout the month.  To join the online discussion, go to https://www.facebook.com/groups/2168740469821856/?source_id=87182937411.  Our first book will be If the Creek Don’t Rise by Leah Weiss, and we have several copies available at the circulation desk.

Also, on September 26 at 6 pm, join us as we welcome Chad Lewis for his presentation of Bizarre History of Wisconsin: Strange Stories from Our Past.

Sweeney from Sweeney Law Offices S.C. has generously offered to share his services with the patrons of the Black Creek Village Library!  He specializes in general litigation, real estate law, debtor/creditor, employer/employee relations, business law, estate planning, municipal law, family law, criminal/traffic, and personal injury.  He will be providing free, confidential legal advice the second Monday of every month from 5 – 6:30 pm.  To reserve a 30 minute time slot on October 8th, please sign up in person at the library, call us at (920) 984-3094, or email us at bcl@blackcreeklibrary.org
