2022 Summer Reading Library Themes:
Oceans of Possibilities & Read Beyond the Beaten Path
Miming Oceans of Possibilities Robert Rivest is a Comic Mime. He sees the world in a very funny way. He is known as the 'human cartoon' because of his highly expressive face and flexible body. Using mime, comedy, and interactive stories, Robert brings original Ocean Themed stories to life before your eyes! He combines classic mime artistry with hilarious character voices and humorous insights into the oceans of positive possibilities in everyday life. Can you imagine your ocean story brought to life? In several audience participation opportunities, we will have fun improvising your story ideas. First, everyone will learn cool mime illusions! Then, we will act out the stories we create together on the spot! The joy we'll experience with movement, expression, creativity and laughter, is truly, beyond imagination.
Mime Outside the Box & Read Beyond the Beaten Path: Humorous adventures in camp, hiking, sports, performing arts and skill development. Can be a fun show by itself or part of a specific theme within the "Read Beyond the Beaten Path” Like Robert's "Science in Motion" Comic Mime Show for Science, Nature or Space Stem Events.

Librarian and Library Staff, Stress: Relief Robert Rivest offers creative stress relief workshops, in-services and staff development training for librarians and staff! His most popular staff development program for libraries is part comic relief and part stress relief tips from mindfulness meditation, tai-chi and laughter yoga. The laughter and improv team building exercises are tons of fun! The take away stress relief tips are very effective for work in the library and every day life.
