CBPL release – Prepare to be amazed when world-famous magician Jeff Evans graces the Mingus Park Stage Monday, June 26, 6:30pm for the Coos Bay Public Library’s Summer Reading Program. Jeff Evans’ career as a professional magician started from a book on coin tricks he read when he was twelve years old. Today he performs hundreds of shows each year, proof that anything you want to learn can be found in books. Two consecutive years ParentMap Magazine awarded him a “Golden Teddy” for Best Live Entertainment and his peers in magic named him “Seattle’s Funniest Magician.” In the event of rain, the event will be held in the Myrtlewood Room at the Coos Bay Public Library. The event is part of the Coos Bay Public Library’s annual Summer Reading Program. During the summer, the Library offers both a reading challenge and programming for all ages which encourage people to read, learn, connect and find their voice. Beginning June 19 and continuing through August 19, participants of any age can participate in the summer reading bingo challenge, earning badges and entry into prize drawings. Participants who register will get a special prize for entering. This year, people can participate either online or using a paper bingo sheet. Challenge registration is available on the Library’s website or at the Coos Bay Public Library.
