misc_none 12:00 PM Juggling Hoffmans   Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    For 5-10 years, and all ages, with a caregiver.

You'll be amazed by the tricks and amused by the antics in a smile-a-long, laugh-a-long interactive good time for all ages.

It's a kid's show the adults will love, too!

Registration is required starting at 7am on the day of the show.

Preference at the door may be given to those who have registered with a valid MCLS library card. Those who have not registered may be admitted as space permits.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Lawrence Library.

(Summer events at most branches are intended to meet the demand of individuals and families residing in member municipalities. While all programs are free, some may require children to pre-register with a valid Mercer County Library System card. Groups or organizations physically located within member municipalities may contact their local branch to find out which months of the year they may best be accommodated with outreach programming, or if any summer programs may be appropriate for larger groups.)
