All Ages.  You bring a picnic dinner and the library will provide dessert!  Join us on the back lawn of the library for some fabulous End of Summer Reading entertainment!  Ed Popielarczyk's Magic Show is a comedy show that uses a lot of audience participation. YOU are the stars of the show because you help to make the magic happen.  Ed doesn’t just “do a trick”, he tells a story that revolves around each trick. It may be a short story or a longer one, but each story helps to bring the trick together.  Everyone who comes on “stage” to be a helper receives a souvenir!

In case of inclement weather, the picnic will be cancelled and the performance will be moved indoors to the Ehlers Room.  If this occurs, free tickets will be available 15 minutes before the program and attendance will be limited to 150 people.
