Our Happy Clients

Draw More Patrons, Increase Circulation, & Increase Library Card Signups

If you’re reading this, then you probably work in a library. If so, I just have two words for you…

Thank you!

Librarians are some of the kindest, hardest-working people around. And librarians like you know the importance of getting more people into your library. But getting children into your library is REALLY important.

Encouraging kids to check out more books benefits everyone:
  • The library benefits from more books in circulation

  • The children reading the books develop and reinforce reading as a lifelong habit

  • Parents have a wonderful and FREE resource available whenever they want
Yes indeed, libraries are important. So much so that I’ve created special programming to help libraries draw more people.

How to Fill Your Library with
Eager Readers

I’m Pipsqueak the Clown. For the last 20 years, I’ve presented fun-filled magic/puppet shows to libraries in New York and Vermont. Based out of Plattsburgh, NY, I love bringing fun and amazing children’s library programs to libraries just like yours.

“Wead Library patrons and staff thoroughly enjoyed Pipsqueak’s Performance. It was an exciting and engaging program. Every child was mesmerized from start to finish. Our summer reading theme and the importance of reading was seamlessly incorporated into the show. Booking Pipsqueak was incredibly easy experience, her secretary Christine worked with us to secure other same day performances to receive a discount. We look forward to booking Pipsqueak again!”

That’s not the only one. Check out my collection of thrilled clients throughout my site.

I use wacky, silly, and eye-catching magic to amaze the children attending. I bring goofy puppets to stir up trouble and create hilarious conflict during each show. And I involve the kids! I invite several children up to the stage to help throughout the show.

The result? An energized, excited group of kids just chomping at the bit to ‘devour’ the books in your library. (Well, not really ‘devour.’ It’s just an expression. Don’t worry. Your books are safe with me!)

But it’s not just about the fun.

Strong Reading Messages + Entertainment = Unforgettable Library Programs

Anyone can get a group of kids jazzed and excited. But that’s not what this is about. My super-secret mission? Amaze kids with the virtues of reading and the library!

And I do it by creating shows designed to highlight each year’s Summer Reading Program theme. Below are details on just a few past shows I’ve created based on that year’s theme:

2022 Theme
– Oceans of Possibilities:

My show, titled “Waves of Fun,” featured books and magic all about water. Along with my Slippery Seal puppet, I used magic and humor to encourage children to check out specific books on that year’s theme.

2023 Theme
– All Together Now:

I created a wonderful show titled “Fabutabulus Friends.” This show was (spoiler alert!) all about making friends! This show revealed the qualities of a good friend, how to be a good friend, and much more.

2024 Theme
– Adventure Begins at your Library:

My adorable dragon puppet and I will take your audience on a hilarious and magical journey through the pages of your favorite books!

Each year I create a brand-new show that is magical, kid-friendly, and perfectly tied to the year’s theme. Your patrons will love seeing a new show each year!

3 Reasons Why Pipsqueak the Clown is the Easiest Entertainer You Will Ever Hire

You’ve read how flexible and adaptable my shows are. You’ve read comments from past clients. You might be wondering if I’m a prima donna? Am I going to demand my own dressing room with chilled sparkling wine?

No, and no! I guarantee I’ll be the most low-key performer ever. Here are three reasons why:

Easy Booking Process

I want to make our time together completely stress-free. My booking process is straightforward. Best of all, I’m professional. This is my business and I treat it as a business.

Flexible & Adaptable

Have you ever met other performers who insisted on everything being ‘just so?’ That’s not me. I’ve visited libraries of all shapes and sizes! Just point me to your performing area and I’ll set up, do my job, and leave the area exactly how I found it.

Fully Self-Contained

Remember ‘stress-free?’ I bring everything I need! I don’t need any tables or anything from you. I even bring my own PA system and microphone. You can just sit back, relax, and take all the credit.
