We have been getting some delicious treats from a few of our great patrons this last week! We just have to say a big “THANK YOU!” for bringing us such wonderful goodies to enjoy at the library! Everything has been so tasty!

The Black Creek Village library is hiring! We are looking for a Youth Services Specialist.  Miss Krista is sadly leaving us for a new adventure and we need to fill her shoes.  If you like working with kids and are looking for a great part time job with a great group of ladies, this might just be the exciting opportunity for you. You can pick up an application at the library or download one from our website. Applications are due by 5:00PM on December 20.

This is the last full week to buy your tickets for the Friends of the Library Christmas raffle basket! It is filled with great goodies and fun holiday surprises!

We are getting ready for the week after Christmas, and we hope your kids will be able to join us for some of our activities. We will be doing a different activity from Tuesday December 26th to Friday December 29th. We will be Coloring and enjoying hot Cocoa on Tuesday (12/26) from 2PM – 4PM.

With the days getting shorter and the nights getting longer (and colder) there is no better time to stay in with a good book or movie. We have many great titles here at the library!

Audiobooks are a great way to read a book while you are busy with chores or even while you are in the car going from place to place. If you are too busy to visit the library you can borrow many of great e-book and e-audiobooks that your library has to offer. Just go to infosoup.org and see what you can find!
