In recent years, between television, the internet , video games, and being involved in various sports throughout the year, children often times lack the desire or time to open a quality book and spend time enjoying reading. It is always a puzzle figuring out the genre of books children are interested in to hook them into reading.
They seem to choose the popular books and miss out on quality literature. As a librarian, creating unique ways to grasp children’s interest in visiting the library may be difficult. The best method in engaging these youthful minds is to contact Domino the Great. In return, you will see an increase in your literature circulation.

Dear Valued New York Youth Services Librarian:
Hello, my name is: Domino The Great and I'm a "full time" professional children's entertainer who has been presenting library programs for many years. My summer reading programs have packed libraries all throughout Connecticut and surrounding areas.
I'm a professional comedy magician, top notch storyteller and a children's author who uses my talents to get the patrons in YOUR community excited about reading.
Now it's time for you to start planning for your 2013 Summer Reading Program. Bring Domino The Great to your CT library this summer and teach all your young patrons all about the enjoyment of reading and checking out books!
NEW FOR 2013:My "Dig Into Reading" Magic Showis an action packed program that will grab the attention of children (and fun loving adults, too) with amazing magic tricks, hilarious age- appropriate humor, tons of audience participation, music and will have YOUR library books flying off your shelves!
Every Summer I developed a brand new summer reading magic show just for public libraries in Connecticut and all over the Northeast. You will see all your eager patrons lined up to check out books after my program!

"We all enjoyed your amazing performance!"
"Domino the Great was wonderful. The little kids were enthralled and captivated by his engaging wit and sense of humor. They loved being his assistants and I loved that he incorporated the "Dream Big" Theme and encouraged them to read (and take excellent care of their Library Books!) It was a pleasure to meet him and I wish him boundless success!"

Last But Not Least: When it comes to finding the right summer reading club performers, you have several different choices in Connecticut. However, many of the performers out there only touch on the importance of reading briefly during their presentation. This is what makes me different from others. Each year, I write and design an all new program which promises to promote reading throughout the entire program.
I will be touring with my 2013 Summer Library Reading Program"Dig Into Reading" Magic Show all over Connecticut, Fairfield County CT, and many more Connecticut cities/towns.
"We all enjoyed your amazing performance!"
"We all enjoyed your amazing performance last summer and look forward to this summer!"
