with Juggler Jason Pipitone

Click Here to Register
Registration is Required 


Jason Pipitone’s Juggling Extravaganza is non stop action! Juggling, physical comedy, balancing tricks and more - you don’t want to miss this exciting event to kick off our Summer Reading Program Series! 

Jason has been an entertainer since he was a young kid growing up in Las Vegas. As a teen he moved to Connecticut and continued to evolve his skills to include stilt walking, unicycle riding, break dancing and comedy. After school he began traveling the country as a street performer working crowd participation and high energy physical routines into his act. Come celebrate summer with the family as Jason puts on a truly unique performance!

Outreach Storytimes for Preschoolers

Each month, Mrs. Shaia, Children’s Librarian, will be bringing her suitcase of storytime themes to 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!
