T. B. Scott Library Announces Summer Library Reading Program Performers

Wednesdays @10a at the PRMS Auditorium

The T. B. Scott Free Library along with its community partners, (Optimists Club of Merrill, Tomahawk Community Bank, and Park City Credit Union), are pleased to announce the summer 2017 professional children’s performers who will be providing free, family-friendly entertainment for Merrill area families this summer.  Thanks to the support of our partners and the Wisconsin Valley Library Service. 

Magician Robert Halbrook will follow Landau by performing his magic show on Wednesday June 21st.  Halbrook, aka Professor Marvel, engages kids with magic, story-telling, and puppetry.  He is a seasoned performer and has entertained families and children in Minnesota and Wisconsin since 1998. Through a selection of books that tie into this summer’s program theme “Build a Better World”, he will help children understand the fun to be had by “doing it yourself”.
Juggler Jason Huneke, who came to fame on America’s Got Talent, will perform at PRMS on Wednesday, June 28th.  Jason infuses his performances with humor and animated juggling.  He includes audience participation in every performance.  “Jason has performed his “G” rated juggling show in over 1,000 cities all over the country and we are especially excited to welcome him to Merrill,” said Forde.
No Library Summer Program would be complete without a visit from some of our animal friends!  Nature’s Niche animal rehabilitator, Dennis Tlachac, will present a fun, educational, and interactive live animal program called, “A Habitat is a Home”, on Wednesday, July 12th.  And the summer line-up will conclude with a visit from perennial favorites Traveling Lantern Theatre on Wednesday, July 19th.
“We would also like to acknowledge our wonderful colleagues at Merrill Transit System!” said Forde. With their support, the Library is once again able to offer a free ride for children and teens plus an accompanying adult to any T. B. Scott Free Library program.
