MCC/LCC grants are due 15 October. Let me write a 2016 grant for your library!
"Build a better World!"
For the summer reading theme of 2017, I offer my tried and proven presentation: “Reading is Magic.” If you are looking for a fun program that uses many volunteers, is full of comedy and suspense, and inspires your patrons to read, then this program is for you.
After being inspired by “Albus Dumbledore” of “Harry Potter” in 1999, I wanted to be a Wizard. I went to the library, borrowed magic books, and taught myself how to be a Wizard. I then created "Reading is Magic.” I wanted to show how reading and comprehension skills are an important part of everyday life; of how reading provides: inspiration, imagination, and expansion of the mind. I wanted to show that when you have free reading time, reading stories that you like, you will become a better reader. It is that easy. Throughout the performance the audience is challenged with questions, magic books are on display, and we finish with a question and answer session.
As I work with audiences of all age groups, each presentation is designed for the understanding level of that audience at that time. This makes my programs ideal for your Juvenile, YA, and Adult reading groups.
