“The Secret of An Unforgettable Children’s Library Program”

How would you like to have a Children’s Library Program that attracts and thrills more youngsters and their families? One that is silly enough to have younger children rolling with laughter, yet sophisticated enough to amaze older kids AND parents.

The show combines amazing magic, lots of audience participation, age appropriate humor, storytelling with reading promotion, a magical game and typically a breathtaking musical routine with mesmerizing special effects! For slightly larger budgets, we can add spectacular illusion(s), such as, floating a child in the air, sawing somebody “in half” or making them magically appear to introduce the show. Children also go crazy for an incredible animated talking picture!

This is an incredibly easy, fun way to hook kids into reading, and get them excited about your Summer Reading Club for example! Not just reading, but checking out & reading all kinds of books – fiction and non-fiction, from your library…

Most years I create a show in accordance with the Collaborative Summer Library Program Theme http://www.cslpreads.org

At the end of this unique, exciting adventure I typically give all children attending their “Reading Objectives List”. This is a list of topics discussed in the show and others youngsters are often interested in, with their associated Dewey Decimal System Numbers!

Kids go crazy over this and use it on their mission to check out at least one book from each topic from the library. How many programs get kids to actively learn and use the Dewey Decimal System, like this?

Children require lots of stimuli to maintain their attention. Lots of performers ignore this! They walk in and start right away with just a few juvenile props! To ensure this show completely captivates children’s attention, it takes as long to set up & then again take down, as it does to perform. As a result, you get the highest quality children’s magic show at a tremendous value, to build your program’s reputation!

“How to Attract More Teens To A Young Adult Library Program”

As you know attracting young adults (5th grade through High School) to a library program is much more challenging than promoting a Children’s Show. If they perceive the offering as juvenile they won’t attend, nor will a “boring adult program” appeal to finicky teens and “tweens”!…

I offer different versions of this program to accommodate most budgets. The longer version includes a breathtaking musical routine finale, including amazing special effects and optional (but very safe) dramatic fire eating!

For slightly larger budgets, we can also add spectacular illusion(s), such as sawing somebody “in half” with a power buzz saw, floating them in the air, or an incredible animated talking picture!

Along with the “mentalism” effects, it combines visual demonstrations of mesmerizing magic/illusions, audience participation including an hypnotic “group induction”, clean comedy, an incredible memory feat and a spellbinding story!

During the course of the show, practical advice and techniques are shared with the audience on improving memory, reading speed, visualizing positive test results, intuition and even how to do a mind reading effect themselves!

Based on my former career as a Professional Engineer, your fun program can include educational and inspirational themes, such as where to learn more about self improvement (Hint: You work there!). Young adults (and their parents) really appreciate this, and you’ll get all the credit…

The program will also increase book circulation as they will want to check out magic and other hobby books I recommend. I suggest you put out a display and watch how fast they are checked out! They’ll even learn the Dewey Decimal System number for magic (793.8)!
