Magician James Wand entertains children uses magic to teach children the importance of reading during a library program on Wednesday.

Edwards Public Library presented Magician James Wand on Wednesday, June 10 as part of the Texas Summer Reading Club’s “Dig into Reading.”

Wand entertained 40 children and 27 adults with magic tricks while teaching participants the importance of building good reading habits.

The hour-long program was the second in a series of six events held at the Holman Center in Henrietta. On Wedensday, June 19 Edwards Public Library will welcome “Jungle Jim’s Wild Encounters.” The event will begin at 10 a.m. at the Holman Center. Jungle Jim will offer a variety of live and preserved arthropods, including the largest species of insects, spiders, scorpions, millipedes, centipedes and crustaceans.

The series opened June 5 with Dinosaur George. He and Jurassic Chip educated, instructed and entertained 86 children and 29 adults.  They explained the existence of dinosaurs, their various sizes and what they ate.  They also described how the dinosaurs lived, and how they protected themselves.  They went over the dinosaur names and had the children repeat, so that they would learn their names.

The Edwards Public Library program is made possible with funds raised during the fourth annual Lyndon Laseman Memorial Fun Run. For more information on the Texas Summer Reading Program, call the library 940-538-4791.
