We had a fantastic time with Jack & Kitty last week! It was a great way to kick off our Summer Reading Program!  We want to thank Jack & Kitty for giving such a great show! Everyone loved it!

If you have not done so yet, stop by and sign up for our Summer Reading Program. This year, the kids will keep track of minutes read, and the teens/adults have to complete bingo boards to earn tickets for one of (6) $50 gift certificates.

This Wednesday, we are challenging kids to make the longest paper chain they can with just 2 pieces of construction paper and 12 inches of tape! Then later, during the teen hour, we are playing the hit party game, Werewolf. You can see the times below. Please note, children under the age of 12 will not be allowed to participate in the teen hour game.

This week, our reading dog, Tonka, will be starting his Monday visits to the library from 1:00PM till 2:30! Come in and sign up for a time slot!

The Thursday night knitting group will be taking a break this summer and will start back up after Labor Day. We will see you in the fall!

If you are looking at clearing out some of your books and would like to donate them to a great cause, you can donate them to our library. Our Friends of the Black Creek Village Library group is considering having a book sale this fall. Money raised from the book sale helps fund some of the great projects that the Friends of the Library do each year.

This year, we have two reading competitions in the program - one for kids and one for teens/adults.

The husband and wife team has been described as “Leon Redbone meets Alicia Keys or Tom Waits meets Beyoncé."  Jack and Kitty have performed in nineteen countries, toured for the US Pentagon, sang at the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts, and were called “one of the most entertaining acoustic groups in the Midwest” by the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
