Summer Reading Kickoff with Pete & Chris Amusements

For All Ages
Click Here to Register 

Come see New England’s only two-man comedy and magic show. They give an ULTRA high-energy performance that captures kids attention, and doesn’t let go! They travel the country bringing their unique blend of magic, storytelling, and brotherly slapstick comedy to hysterically laughing kids. Think of Presto Pete and Incredulous Chris as human cartoon characters as they take their audience through one wacky situation after another. 

Meet Presto Pete, the main magician. He is constantly positive and strong minded, much to the chagrin of Incredulous Chris. Pete always sees the positive side of things and is the goofball of the two.

Incredulous Chris
, as his name would suggest, is more of the sceptic. He can see the positives of things, but is also very keen on pointing out the negatives. He always tries to foil or disprove Presto Pete. This dynamic duo will delight as we begin the start of the summer.

Outreach Storytimes for Preschoolers

Each month, Mrs. Shaia, Children’s Librarian, will be bringing her suitcase of storytime themes to Litchfield Headstart, Room to Grow, School on the Green, and the 3-year and 4-year old classes at Litchfield Center School.

Each program is unique, supports the preschool curriculum, and includes new and classic picture books, flannel board stories, fingerplays, musical instruments, puppets and a themed craft. PLUS, Mrs. Shaia brings books from OWL’s extensive collection for the schools to borrow each month!
