Jester Jim coming to Evans on 7/3!

July 1st, 2014 by aholland in Kids · No Comments ·

With a trunk full of props and a looping machine, Jester Jim takes the stage and starts his show.  Young and old are glued to his every sound as he performs his amazing beatbox intro.  Kids and parents alike will talk about the show for weeks after, and libraries can’t seem to get enough of Jim and his plungers.

Jim performs over 200 shows a year and was voted ‘best family entertainment’ by Entertainer America.

Everyone will love ‘The Jester Jim Show.’

All ages. Thursday 7/3 @ 2:00. Pauline Evans branch. No registration required.

So many folks stop in the branches and ask how the new library is coming along.  Now you can monitor the progress yourself online.

On the Town of Irondequoit website you can read about the project,  other initiatives related to the project and watch a video time lapse of the work.

On the Town Development Department website you can see what portions of the project are up for competitive bidding and learn how to get more information and even bid on the work.
