First Regional Library is planning to add a little magic to the fun at the library this summer with FINDERS KEEPERS, featuring magic, puppets, fun and storytelling for children presented by award-winning performer, Dorian LaChance.

LaChance and the kids will explore the many adventures that can be had at the library as a part of the Summer Reading Program. This interactive program is not only fun, but it encourages kids to read for fun and learning.

LaChance will be at the Lafayette County and Oxford Public Library at 2 p.m. on July 10.

Based in Madison, LaChance is an educator, comedian, magician, puppeteer and storyteller who travels all over the southeast performing programs that encourage kids to read.  He has won numerous awards including the People’s Choice Award for KIDabra International.

“I believe that reading opens the door to learning about everything else in life.  That’s why all my school and library shows encourage reading,” says LaChance, who has been a professional performer since 2009.

An avid reader himself, LaChance performs about 200 shows each year in schools and libraries and at special events all over the Southeast.
