Magician Curtis Hed will once again be presenting his Magic of Reading Show in conjunction with the Kansas City Public Libraries summer reading program.

Curtis’s show includes Magic, Comedy, some Juggle, and Duo the Dove. As for the show itself, it’s one of those rare presentations that is as enjoyable for the adults as it is for the kids. Like one of those good kid movies where the kids enjoy the show on one level and the adults on another, only unlike kid’s movie it’s live and it doesn’t have chase scene, a bad guy, or a talking donkey.

June is a great month to learn how to use the sewing machine or how to learn the technique of hand sewing. Summer shorts, capris or summer tops are easy to sew. Learning how to follow a pattern, sewing buttons on or other basic repairs are fun once the craft is learned. Hope to see you at the Westport Library...
