Library Programs

Mr. Jim has been hosting summer library programs for over 20 years!  A magician, school speaker, entertainer and author (Magicians in the Making and Magical Secrets), Mr. Jim offers a broad variety of wholesome programs for the entire family.

Your library can choose from any of the following programs, any time of the year, for children or teens:

  • Summer Reading Magic Show (tailored every year to the state’s annual theme)
  • Sport (Cup) Stacking (the most popular hands-on program, for all ages)
  • Juggling for Success (another hands-on, fun-filled program)
  • Balloon Sculpting (“Everything you ever wanted to know about balloon creations!”)
  • General Magic Show (for all occasions or created to match your theme)
  • “Magic of Reading” magic show (this presentation explains the ABCs of creating a book)
  • Magic Camp (2nd grade and up — 1 hour, half-day, or full-day format)

Summer, 2017: “STACK IT UP!”

Participants in our Sport Stacking program have long enjoyed building structures, like pyramids and towers. But in 2017, we will travel around the world and build some of the world’s greatest structures!

  • Pyramids of Eygpt
  • Castles of Europe
  • “The great wall” of China
  • India’s Taj Mahal
  • The Eiffel Tower of Paris
  • And more!

This hands-on family program is for all ages!


PORTAGE (Laura W.)

Jim is a ‘go-to’ performer. I’m pretty sure he could make anything interesting!


The best program I have seen in years! The total audience participation, his enthusiasm, and the humor, made for a wildly entertaining program!


Always entertaining. He won’t disappoint!

ZEELAND (Jessica V)

We at the Howard Miller Library were so impressed. He’s extremely talented, and has a passion for teaching and sharing.


As always, what a great program! Mr. Jim is fun, funny and magical!
