Amazing Adrian Magic Show!

The Amazing Adrian wowed us with his magic show this past Saturday, here at the Sergio Troncoso Public Library.

He began his performance with his magical doves that appeared from out of thin air!



We were squirming in our seats as the Amazing Adrian revealed a HUGE needle!  He was going to try to insert this massive needle into a balloon without popping it – impossible!



He had volunteers touch the balloon to prove that it was real - it was!


We held our breath as the Amazing Adrian had the crowd count down “3! 2! 1!” and like magic (hahaha), he pierced the balloon and it didn’t pop! TA-DA!


Then, through a series of magical exercises, the Amazing Adrian magnetized a volunteer from the audience.  Here is our lucky volunteer holding onto the Amazing Adrian’s magic magnet and three spoons:


And then we watched in awe as the Amazing Adrian performed a series of complicated magic rope tricks, making the rope double and triple in size and then shrink into tiny little pieces:

First Annual Library Comic Con!

This past Saturday, we had our first annual Library Comic Con here at the Sergio Troncoso Public Library!
Free and open to the public, we had so many fun activities:


Our friends at American Income Life helped our patrons sign up for free Child Safe Kits and had a balloon popping game:



Library Customer Service Specialist Desiree was in charge of our arts and crafts table where you could create your own comic book and design your own super hero mask:




We set up the video game Rock Band and both patrons and staff (that’s our Branch Manager Derek and Library Customer Service Specialist Matthew!) had a great time rocking out:




And you could take your picture wearing a super hero mask with some superheroes! Visiting us was Wonder Woman, Batman, Batgirl, and Spiderman!  WOW!




We were so lucky that they were able to take some time away from crime-fighting to join us at our comic con.  I guess that's why the Hulk couldn't make it?  Here is Batman giving out stickers and Batgirl and Spiderma…
