Patrons young and older enjoyed Wink Danenberg at the Atmore Public Library’s final summer reading program for the year Friday, . Billed as juggler extraordinaire, Wink indeed entertains with juggling tricks, but he’s also a comedians. Maybe better to say he’s an entertainer who relates to all ages.
Through his presentation – juggling, interacting with the audience, he constantly makes references to the library, to individual books, to the importance of reading. He said he checked out his first book at the public library in his hometown – Lafayette, La. – when he was eight years old. It was a book on juggling.
“Juggling is like reading,” Wink said. “You can’t start with something big – you have to start with something small.”
Following Wink’s presentation, the library staff gave out awards for young patrons who read books and kept a log during the summer reading program in June.
