Looking for a Summer Reading Program that will appeal to older kids and adults? Aside from my SRP magic show, I also offer hour-long magic classes that might be just what you're looking for.
Each magic class teaches about half a dozen tricks which can be done with common objects like rubber bands, pencils and coins. Magic is a wonderful hobby which offers some unexpected educational benefits. Different aspects of magic may involve scientific principles, psychology, public speaking, history and, of course, reading. Hopefully, once your guests get a taste of magic, they'll be coming back to your library often to check out magic books.
I provide all of the materials needed for the class, you just need to provide the students. Whether they're 8 or 98, they'll love the class and will be able to leave your library knowing how to do some really amazing tricks.
