What You Should Know

• This program requires approximately 1 hour of set-up before the show. The cool gadgets and demonstrations require more space than an average library presentation, so a large meeting room or outdoor space works best.

• You can make this program more cost effective by teaming up with other libraries in your area to all book the program during the same day or back-to-back days.

• Building on a Dream is fun for elementary (youth library program) audiences, and also for tween / teen audiences (8-16).
