Families who stop by the University Park Public Library on Saturday afternoon are in for a treat. Magician and comedian Brett Roberts will be there to present “Dr. Flake-n-stein’s Magic Laboratory,” a show that combines magic, robot puppets, and science experiments. This interactive performance lets children participate in magic tricks and also help with real science experiments, which they could safely recreate at home. The show is designed to encourage children to pursue their interests in magic and science through reading.
This event is part of the UP at the Library Family Time series, which is sponsored by Christine McKenny and Dave Perry-Miller & Associates. All programs begin at 2 p.m. on the fourth Saturday of the month at the library, which is in The Plaza at Preston Center.
