From the June 22, 2016 issue of The Journal
   The Marion County Public Library was the site of some "magic mayhem" last Friday afternoon as Ken Scott brought his "Ready! Set! Read! Magic Show" to town as part of the Summer Reading Program.
   Scott, of Newnan, is a three-time winner of the Greater Atlanta Magician of the Year award. He tailored his performance in Buena Vista around illusions inspired by children's books. For photos click here.
   Those who missed the show still have plenty of opportunities to enjoy the various events of the library's summer program, which are listed below.
