Magic Mike's new tricks
by Daniel Freeman
Mike Rose changes with the times.
Rose, a magician who has performed at the Cecil County Library branches each summer, creates a new show each year to complement the library's summer reading program theme.
"This year, the theme is Build a Better World, so it's about building and construction and things like that. I created a magic show, (which) is Magician at Work. I just basically go through my library of 2,500 magic books and I just look for tricks that kind of give me ideas to go with the theme," said Rose.

Rising Sun Branch users get a few extra weeks with their full sized library.
The branch's temporary downsize for renovations will begin December 1. Initially, the branch was to condense its services beginning in November. Now, according to Morgan Miller, assistant director for Cecil County Public Libraries, the full branch was able to be open weeks longer than anticipated. The project now will be underway from December through April.
