We enjoyed multi-talented Mike Randall and his puppet friends at this comical event of magic
and ventriloquism, including lots of audience participation!

We learned all about owls as three live owls were brought into the library by a naturalist
from Wild Spirit Education.


Tuesday, July 21: Charlie and Checkers

Charlie and Checkers showed us how to be “safety heroes” in our homes.
Along with fire safety tips, we experienced the fun comedy magic of “Trixie” the live rabbit,
juggling, HUGE magic wands, and Checker’s famous giant balloon!
The Mayor of Lakewood was on hand too!


Tuesday, July 28: Lakewood Fire Department

their fire engine and doned their fire gear!
We finished with a pizza party provided by Pizza Hut!
