Eric Vaughn Magic on Friday, March 6, at 6:30 p.m.
Vaughn's passion for magic started when he was 10 years old.

Appropriate for all ages.
Peanut Butter Hamster on Friday, March 20, at 6:30 p.m.
You don't just sit and watch Terry and Melissa Wright perform. They make you a part of an interactive show - singing, dancing, laughing, having more fun than humans young or old should be allowed. Appropriate for all ages.
Every Game Has a Story: The Sandlot on Friday, March 27.
The 1993 film is a small treasure, a sweet and funny coming-of-age story about friendship and fitting in, about kids and baseball and a beast of a dog (actually called The Beast) on the other side of the fence. The event, in partnership with the Kansas City Film Festival, opens with a brief discussion about the art of storytelling at 6:10 p.m., followed by a screening of the movie at 6:30. Recommended for ages 8 and up.
Admission to each of the events is free. RSVP at kclibrary.org or call 816.701.3407.
