Dear Colleagues,
Joel Tacey just left Baldwin after another successful Video Gamefest for
our Teens! As in the past, Joel was prompt, professional, enthusiastic, and
fun!
We booked Joel for a double program. The Video Party followed his
ScienceRific Comedy Show for a younger audience with an attendance of over
100. We were all smiling as laughs were heard throughout the library. A
very upbeat Gamefest followed with 4 amazing game stations, mini
tournaments, and prizes.
Joel is one of our favorite hosts and always presents a top notch show. I
highly recommend him for future events in our library circles.
