A Visit From Magician James Wand

Magician James Wand visited the Haltom City Public Library  Friday, July 21. His fast-paced, super-lively program involved the concept of expanding young readers knowledge by reading lots of books. The theme of the event was  the apprehension of the evil villain, Dr. NoNo. Throughout the program, young volunteers were chosen to help with various magic tricks featured in the show. I have included a short video segment of the program.
 Come join us for more fun in the upcoming events.
