Now you see him, now you don’t! Experience the wonder that only a truly gifted and wonderful magician can bring.

Archie Wade will appear at the Columbiana Public Library on the June 18 at 1 p.m. to present his captivating program of magic and stories of true-life heroes.

Archie expresses his excitement and desire to impart to the children of Columbiana that they are “surrounded by heroes, everyday heroes that are all around you: Doctors, policemen, firemen, paramedics, soldiers, and even our parents are examples of everyday heroes. While comic book super heroes are fun, we should all be aware of the everyday heroes in our communities.”

Come be amazed and entertained while your children learn of the wonderful things that our neighbors do in our communities each and every day.

Additional activities the week of June 14-20 are as follows: Monday – free pizza and a movie at 1 p.m. (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles); and Tuesday – Miss Jennie’s Story time at 9:30 a.m., which includes a story and craft for children between the ages of birth and second grade.

Also on Tuesday mornings, the Loose Stitches Knitting group meets at 10 a.m. No experience is necessary; just a willingness to learn.

Tuesday evening, come for the free pizza and a movie at 5, “Mall Cop 2.”

Thursday features a free movie and pizza at 5, “The Theory of Everything.”

Moving on to Friday we have craft time with Miss Mary from 10-11 a.m.

Finally, rounding out the week there will be a true treat from the whole family as we reflect on our national independence.

Saturday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., noted historian Jim Phillips will present a lively program about the Lost Facts of the American Revolution including artifacts from the colonial period.
