The T.B. Scott Free Library along with its community partners (Friends of the T.B. Scott Library, Lincoln Windows, Merrill Community Bank, Merrill Noon Optimist Club, Park City Credit Union, Weinbrenner Shoe Company, Wisconsin Public Service, and Wisconsin Valley Library Service), are pleased to announce the summer 2018 professional children’s performers who will be providing free, family-friendly entertainment for Merrill area families this summer.
•This summer’s headliner is Jim Lenz who is scheduled to perform at the Prairie River Middle School (PRMS) Auditorium at 10 a.m. Monday, June 18. Jim Lenz calls himself the “Magic & Science Guy” from Green Bay. He is a former science teacher who has taken his love of science on the road and added a touch of humor to all of his presentations to create an hour long presentation of science fun.
•Following his morning performance, Jim invites area families to enjoy some giant-sized party games along with his strolling magic show on the library lawn at 1 p.m. on the afternoon of the 18th.
•Magician Isaiah Foster, who packed the second floor of the Library during a recent Family Fun Night in March, has returned to fill the PRMS Auditorium Wednesday, June 27 at 10 a.m. with this interactive comedy magic show: “Reading is Magical.”
•No Library Summer Program would be complete without a visit from some of our animal friends! Noelle Tarrant, of Zoozort, is a wildlife educator extraordinaire and she will be presenting two programs at the Library on the second floor in the Youth Services Department Monday, July 9, at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.
•Our rockin’ summer of fun concludes with the music of Milwaukee duo Fox & Branch. Join them at the PRMS auditorium on Wednesday, July 25, at 10 a.m. for music you can sing along and dance to in the tradition of the great Pete Seeger.
“We are grateful to all of our 2018 sponsors for helping the Library to be one of the best places for children to visit and grow this summer,” said Youth Services Librarian Carolyn Forde. “We would also like to acknowledge our wonderful colleagues at Merrill Transit System!” With their support, the Llbrary 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.
