Library Programs

THANKS for taking the time to look into my independent series of Library Shows that I have created and performed in the mid-west United States for the last 30 years!!!

My Library Programs are…
“Practical Presentations Prepared to Promote Pursuing of Positive Prewritten Passages… BOOKS!!!”

My 50-60 minute Library Programs highlight the fact that
Reading is FUN, Enjoyable and Educational!

My Library Programs allow kids to discover how all of their DREAMS can come TRUE when they visit their local library on a regular basis and read as many books as possible! My Magic Library Programs also teach some MAGICAL life-lessons including how reading can impact and even enhance our daily lives.

The BEST part about my Magic Library Shows is that there is more than just one show to choose from, so if you wanted, your library can schedule an entire SERIES of shows that will draw the masses into your library ON DEMAND!


My 2021 Magic Library Show is titled…
“Tails & Tales”

Some of my PREVIOUS Magic Library Shows…

“Crazy & Creepy Creature”
“Creative Artists”
“Dig Into Books!”
“FIZZ, BOOM!, READ!”
“Get a Clue”
“Got Bugs”
“Magic of the Night”
“Medieval Magic”
“Purrrrrfect Pets”

I’m already working on my Magic Library Show for 2022 titled…
“Oceans of Possibility”

My Magic Library Shows incorporate elements of SCIENCE, MATH, MUSIC, PERCEPTION, TRICKERY and of course… MAGIC! Everyone can enjoy my Magic Library Programs, because they are all RATED-G!

While my Magic Library Programs are pre-planned and choreographed, if your library requires special changes or additions to the show, just let me know and I’ll make sure your additions are as MAGICAL as possible!

THANKS again for reading about my Magic Library Shows! While you’re here, please read a few reviews of my Magic Library Shows I’ve gathered over the years that I’ve posted below…

A FEW REVIEWS…


Thanks again for the programs you presented for our summer reading program. It was a fabulous summer for us, and our success is due to the high caliber of performers like yourself who inspire, educate and amuse the young readers of Wichita. Thanks again!”

          – Julie Linneman, Wichita Public Library


“(Shawn) was able to hold their attention for over 40 minutes with fascinating card tricks, disappearing items as well as a variety of other intriguing illusions. Students were bewildered and their curiosity heightened as they try to determine how he accomplished the various acts. Incorporated in the program was also a message to the students to stay drug free and lead a happy, healthy lifestyle. Mr. Reida took time at the conclusion of the performance to answer questions from students regarding (a drug free lifestyle,) magic and illusions.”

          – Pat Yorgenson, Oatville Elementary, USD 261


“Our kids were really excited about the show! Thanks again!”
