SANTA MONICA—On Monday, August 1, the record holding juggler, David Cousin, will be performing at the Santa Monica Public Library, according to a press release from the city of Santa Monica. This free show is family friendly for ages four and up. The library also invites everyone to sign up for summer reading.

The show will be held at the Main Library in the Martin Luther King Jr. Auditorium at 2:30 p.m. Tickets will be available starting at 2 p.m. and the limited seating will be on a first come, first served basis. The show will last about 45 minutes, Youth Services Librarian, Ann Wagner, told Canyon News in an email.

Cousin has been a juggler for 30 years and holds five world records for juggling. He provides a professional family-oriented comedy juggling show that he performs worldwide, according to his website. Cousin has opened for John Mellencamp on his concert tour and has performed with the Philadelphia Orchestra.

This is not his first time performing at the Santa Monica Public Library. “He is a favorite of ours and our patrons!” Wagner told Canyon News.

The library will also be offering other kid friendly events. “We also have a summer-long reading program where kids can get prizes for the time they spend reading over the summer,” Wagner told Canyon News. “This is open to anyone–you don’t have to have a Santa Monica Public Library card. Also, we have a pop-up library at the beach, which includes story times for kids, hula hoop lessons, crafts, and more.”
