Foreword – March 25, 2024

This week we’d like to shine a spotlight on an online resource provided to library cardholders state-wide: U.S. Newsstream. This database provides access to newspapers nationwide from the 1980s to the present. It includes content from Gannett Media Corp, which includes the Appleton Post-Crescent and the Green Bay Press Gazette, and the articles are provided in a full text format. While it does not provide access to the entire daily edition of each publication, you may find content that otherwise would be behind a paywall. To find this resource, go to the Infosoup homepage, choose “Research Tools, Magazines, Newspapers and Homework” from the “Learning & Research” menu. U.S. Newsstream is listed in the newspapers section.

Black Creek Village Library is hosting a mini-art show! Mini (3”x3”) canvases will are available for pickup while supplies last. Pick up a canvas, take it home, and use the media of your choice to create work of art to be displayed at the library. The deadline to return the completed canvases is April 2. The art will be displayed April 6-April 13, which is National Library Week.

Taking photos with your smart phone can be relatively simple, but what about editing photos? Sharing them? Smartphone Photos, a class provided by Bug Tussel University, will teach you how to view, save, share, organize, and edit photos on your smartphone. The program is Saturday, April 27, 9:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m. Space is limited, and registration is required. Please stop in or call the library to register.

Storytime continues on Thursdays at 10:15 a.m. Young children and their caregivers are invited to come for stories, songs, silliness, and more!
