I've been called "practically an institution" at the Yelm Timberland Library. That's a good thing, right? Thanks to Yelm librarian Mike M. who has hosted me nearly annually since 1994.

Magic on the big screen! Several interactive video segments are featured in my "Dig into Magic" show, and I was able to take advantage of the professional projection screen at the Microsoft Auditorium at the Seattle Public Library. I love it when technology works! http://edumazement.com/blog/2013/08/23/seattle-public-library-magic/

Read 500 minutes in the King County Library System's Summer Reading Program and receive a small "shovel" that you plant in the ground and water. Supposedly wildflowers will grow.... Turns out a rogue carnivorous plant sprouted from magician Jeff Evans' seed!

Jeff Evans' career in #magic began from a book of coin tricks when he was twelve years old. Proof that anything can be learned from books! About 350 people attended his outdoor shows for the #Centralia #Timberland Library.
