An event titled "Count Whackula's Things That Go Bump in the Night" will be 11 a.m. Thursday at the Brainerd Public Library.

Families can spend their day off school by engaging and interacting with a magic program that motivates reading. A family-oriented event, "Count Whackula's Things That Go Bump in the Night" is never too scary, even for preschoolers, and although it's designed for youth in preschool through fifth grade it can entertain even the older youth.

"The Count" uses story-telling, drama, comedy, magic, lots of great books and audience participation.

"The show is "chock-ful of goofy, spoofy, un-boo- lievable magic and terrific books," the library staff stated in a news release. "Plus the kids will get some trick or treating safety tips that will remind them how to stay safe while trick-or-treating."

Count Whackula believes that each time a book is opened regular readers have the opportunity to explore extraordinary worlds, meet outrageous characters even creatures, and learn how to do amazing things.
