Ever seen a 6-foot-tall, yellow hippo? It must be magic, right? Well, the Larkspur Library mascot is pretty fantastic and so are Larky's books. Larky's Summer Reading Club begins Saturday, June 9 at 11 a.m., at the Larkspur Library with magician Michael Stroud (co-author of the The Klutz Book of Magic). Start the weekend with a morning of dazzling magic tricks and high hilarity! Please call (415) 927-5005 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a spot.
