'Jungle Jim' shows kids the joys of reading

Jul 29, 2017

Rochester — Jim Manning will be bringing his 6-­foot balloon and the rest of his act to the Joseph H. Plumb Memorial Library on August 14. Manning, or as he is known by his moniker “Jungle Jim,” will be performing in Rochester at the Fellowship Hall of the Rochester Congregational Church, 11 Constitution Way at 4:30 p.m.

Jungle Jim’s shows are a bit different - he combines magic, comedy and balloons to present a program that encourages literacy and reinforces the fun of being at the library. For this year’s program, Jungle Jim is using the video game “Minecraft” as his inspiration for “Build a Better World," the Summer Reading Program theme. This performance is recommended for children ages 3 ­-10.

Registration is required. Register at www.plumblibrary.com on the Events Calendar.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Rochester Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
