Foreword: April 9, 2018

By on

Who’s ready for some spring-like weather?  We are!  With Summer Reading just two months away (can you believe it?) there is a lot going on at the library.  In addition to our gardening workshop on April 26 (don’t forget to mark your calendars,) and FBCVL’s Booked For Dinner on April 21, we also have another School’s Out Friday coming up - just in time for Arbor Day.

Join us on Friday, April 27 from 2-4 pm for lots of tree and nature-themed activities, including pressed leaf coasters, personalized tree discs, Bean in a Bag, and more.  Please let us know if you plan to be here so we can have enough materials for everyone.  Here’s how to RSVP: sign up in person at the library, call us at (920) 984-3094, email us at, send us a message on our Facebook page:, or simply click “Going” on our Facebook event page, and then comment with the names of the people attending.  Easy!

Check out the new spring raffle basket from the Friends of the Black Creek Village Library!  Filled with homemade goodies, candy and items that will get you ready for warmer weather! As always, tickets are $0.25 each or 5 for $1.00.

Don’t forget to join us for Flash Friday crafts on Friday at 3:15.
