Flow Circus Comes to Mary Riley Styles Public Library

Flow Circus, an organization that aims to promote active learning and play through the juggling arts, is coming to Mary Riley Styles Public Library on Wednesday, Aug. 17 for two events. The first event, which will take place from 3 – 4:30 p.m. in the library’s conference room, is for children rising to grades 4 – 12.

Children can spin, balance and toss their way to learning new tricks with skill toys from around the world like flower sticks, kendama and spinning plate. A variety of skills will be introduced in the fast-paced, high-energy, interactive workshop. Registration is required for the event and is limited to 15 participants.

Then, starting at 7 p.m., performer Paul Miller will use dynamic storytelling to explain how he learned to set goals and find resources and practice in order to achieve his goals. One book starts him on a playful journey filled with objects flying, spinning, balancing and disappearing. This event is suggested for children ages five and up and registration is not required.
