Stop by early to get your front row seat and discover who the mystery guest is.

Magician Peter Boie, with his presentation on Magic for Nonbelievers will amaze children of all ages on Tuesday, July1 at 6 p.m. Peter first became fascinated with magic at the age of eleven when he stumbled across a magic book at his local library. He now travels around the country performing his award winning magic. Peter's show is about two things, astonishing magic, and having a good time; and he doesn't skimp on either.

Both programs are free and open to the public. All are welcome. For more information about the Library and its programs check the website, www.gyrla.org.
