About the Library
New to the Library?
The Black Creek Village Library is free for anyone who lives, works, goes to school or owns land in the state of Wisconsin. You can borrow books, movies, CDs and more from the library. We have items to meet your entertainment as well as your informational needs. You can also borrow materials from any of the Infosoup Libraries and have materials from those libraries sent to the Black Creek Village Library for you to pick up. The library also has many free programs for everyone to enjoy. The first Black Creek Village Library was established in 1901. In 1926, it moved to the corner of Oak and Maple, in the building where the Village Clerk’s Office is now held. In 1990, we moved to our current building.
