Add A Little MAGIC To Summer Reading

"My Mom was on her own and had to work several jobs, so I came here and read about Houdini and other magicians. In this library, I got lost in the world of books and developed a love for magic," said the world-famous magician. "I can tell you from my life's experience: Books are a treasure and the library is truly a magical place."  (quote from David Blaine via NYPL press release)

Blaine was recently at the Brooklyn Public Library (his old stomping grounds).  He is also this year's spokesman for Summer Reading 2006; the theme, Books: A Treasure!  [TO UNLOCK-I had to add that!]
