Outstanding live performance shows, featuring professional entertainers, will promote and encourage reading for children aged 5 to 12. In addition to the performances, kids are encouraged to read various books, depending on their ages. We will provide special passports for them to write their titles. They will receive prizes. Programs are on Wednesdays; each program begins at 10:30 a.m. Today's show: Magician, actor and entertainer Arty Loon. A big hit at the Palm Desert Library last year, Arty is back with a show of great juggling, balloon twisting, puppetry, comedy and magic. He has performed at the Magic Castle in Hollywood.
