Magician Leif David packed the Keremeos Library Friday night, November 15 for an entertaining 40 minutes.

Approximately 109 children and 100 adults covered just about every inch of floor space not supporting book shelves  in the library.

David, who told the audience that he had been practising his craft for 19 years, noted that he initially learned about magic through library books.

Throughout his act, references were made regarding the value of books and reading to the youthful group represented. David had the audience delightfully engaged throughout the performance. “The numbers exceeded our expectations,” said Librarian Debra Holley. “It was an amazing performance that had the kids captivated.”

It was the B.C. born magician’s second appearance in Keremeos.
