Registration Party!

Join us on the Front Lawn of the Library. Register for summer programs and see the Spoonman perform. 

The “Spoon Man” is a Published Author who offers a hilarious interactive comedy program for all ages. He gives a real stirring performance. Everyone will really eat him up. No bibs required. The “Spoon Man” has a totally clean act. He never uses dirty silverware. The “Spoon Man” will leave a lasting impression after playing on you (literally). It’s a spoonful of family fun.
