Magic at the West U Library

Our summer programs started off with an exciting magic show featuring local magician, Steve Burton.  The audience was amazed by the fabulous "How'd he do that?"  tricks. We were fortunate to have the program at the newly renovated senior center next door to the Library.  Their auditorium accomodates large crowds.

All Library  programs are free and are listed on the West U Library website.  Calendars are also available at the Library.

Visit the Library website at www.hcpl.net to sign up for the summer reading program.  Children who read [or have read to them] 10 picture books - or read on their own for 5 hours or 500 minutes - will receive a free paperback book, a certificate and a food coupon from a local restaurant.
