DAZZLING DAVE BRINGS HIS SHOW TO SPRING VALLEY PUBLIC LIBRARY!
Things are going to get Yo-Yo! We are thrilled to welcome Dazzling Dave, Yo-yo Master and performer, for a fun and entertaining show. Dave does all kinds of tricks and incorporates science into his presentation. On Wednesday, July 20th the library will be spinning, rocking and rolling with Dave and his yo-yo fun! The FREE show starts at 1:30 PM. Dazzling Dave Schulte is a professional yo-yo performer and highly acclaimed champion who has circled the globe since 1998, thrilling audiences everywhere with his tricks and tips, all designed to entertain, educate, and illuminate the beauty of the growing sport of professional yo-yo. In October of, Dazzling Dave was named to an elite group of National Yo-Yo Masters, making him one of the exclusive members of the Yo-Yo Judges at the World and National Yo-Yo Championships each year. Dave is a former middle school teacher who currently lives in Minnesota and gives hundreds of shows each year. He and his wife, Kim, have two children, Eric and Kate, and an incredible collection of over 1,500 yo-yos from around the world. It’s amazing how his life has changed since that first day in 1993 when he was just a college junior looking for a diversion from the pressure of final exams. “Hey,” he said to his buddy. “Mind if I try your yo-yo?”
This project is made possible with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund (ACHF) and the people of Minnesota for Library Legacy activities. The ACHF was created in 2008 from the Clean Water, Land and Legacy amendment to the Minnesota State Constitution. Minnesota’s 365 public libraries receive funding distributed through existing formulas to the 12 Minnesota Regional Library Systems to provide programs and services in four areas: arts (visual, performing and media), culture, literary and Minnesota history.
Please join us July 13th at 1:30 PM for the Eagle Bluff Learning Center’s Birds of Prey at our Summer Reading Program! The Live Birds of Prey Program features a combination of three of four live birds-a red tailed hawk, a barred owl, an American kestrel or a turkey vulture. All of these birds have injuries which prevent them from living in the wild, so they serve their species by being ambassadors. Eagle Bluff is a private, non-profit residential environmental learning center located near Lanesboro in the beautiful bluff-country of southeast Minnesota. They believe that together we can all make a lasting difference by connecting people to the natural world through experiential learning and positive outdoor experiences. Eagle Bluff accomplishes their mission through a variety of outdoor, hands-on and/or natural history-based programs. More information on the Eagle Bluff Environmental Learning Center can be found on their website at http://www.eagle-bluff.org
