Libraries Rock: a Magical Musical Tour

Dan Dan the Magic Man, the traveling library magician is coming to town to help our young people get excited about books and reading. Dan Dan the Magic Man will bring his unique blend of comedy and magic to the annual summer reading program on Monday, June 4th at 3:00 P.M.
His all-new magic show is a forty minute program that is based on this year’s summer reading theme: “Libraries Rock”. Through audience participation, Dan Dan the Magic Man uses his nearly 40 years of magical experience to bring to life the joys of reading and the fun of learning and exercise. Each summer, Dan Dan travels the state of Kansas with his magical children as his assistants and a menagerie of live animals. You never know what surprises will be up Dan Dan’s sleeve when his magic reading show comes to town during his 16th summer reading tour. The magically fun performance will thrill children of all ages and entertain their parents as well. As always, Dan Dan the Magic Man’s shows are interactive, so children get to help create the magic!
The summer reading program provides local children the opportunity to develop reading skills, share in fun activities, and experience the benefits of the local public library. Studies have shown that children who continue to read during the summer perform better in the fall when school resumes. Summer reading programs like Dan Dan’s “Magical Musical Tour” magic show make reading enjoyable and appealing to young people. 
Admission is free and everyone is invited to enjoy a good time with Dan Dan the Magic Man at Haskell Township Library.
