Be sure to stop by the Oak Creek Library on National Night Out for the Friends of the Oak Creek Library's annual used book, DVD, and video sale, that starts at 5 p.m. :)

Thanks, Tom, I was just going to add that. We will be collecting items for the book sale through July 21, so if you have any used books, DVD's, CD's, or videocassettes - children's and adult, we will be happy to receive them. Just drop them off at the Oak Creek Public Library and mark them "Friends Sale".
