Magician Ken Scott chooses helpers from the crowd during his program at the Central Library.

Ken Scott, one of the foremost summer reading performers in Georgia, presented his Dig into Reading Magic Show at Coweta Public Library System’s Powell Library and the Central Library, to a standing-room-only crowd at both locations.

“The audience enjoyed seeing Coweta’s own back at the libraries this summer and looks forward to seeing Scott again soon,” says Shamika Person of Coweta Public Library System’s Central Library on Literay Lane in East Coweta. A reminder to Coweta County residents: summer is plowing by and you should still be reading for a chance to win amazing prizes at the end of the summer, she said. “The Summer Reading Program is a great way for everyone to maintain and improve reading skills, comprehension, and fluency over the summer months,” she added.

The deadline for all entries is July 27, with the winner to be announced July 29. Todd Kee and the Flying Debris Circus was at Powell Library on Hospital Road in Newnan and at the Senoia branch Tuesday, and several more performers are scheduled for the Dig Into Reading! summer reading focus. Families are invited to programs on specified dates at the Central and Powell Libraries for performances beginning at 11 a.m. and Grantville and Senoia branch libraries beginning at 2 p.m.

Remaining special summer performances are: • July 17 – Dr. Magical Balloons (DeWayne Reynolds), Central Library and Grantville Branch.

• July 23 – Reading Pep Rally (Chris Rumble), Powell Library and Senoia Branch.

• July 24 – The Inflatable Zoo (Adam Komesar), Central Library and Grantville Branch,

• July 25 – The Wizard of Oz (A Company of Friends Production), Central Library. Several more educational programs are planned at Coweta’s libraries as well.

The Central Library on Literary Lane in east Coweta will host “Dig Into Coweta History” presented by local historian Herb Bridges on Thursday, July 18 at 11 a.m.

CAREing Paws will present reading therapy dogs 11 a.m. July 27 at the Senoia branch. For more information visit www.cowetapubliclibrary.org or your local CPLS branch.
