If you missed the last event sponsored by the Summer Reading Program at the Brooklyn Park Library, 1 East 11th Ave., be sure to mark this one on your calendar. At 7 p.m. Thursday, professional magician Michael Chamberlin is returning with a new bag of comedy magic tricks, including a disappearing act.
He uses lots of audience participation, so plan to be a part of the show.
The magic show, which is free, is geared toward children entering kindergarten through sixth grade in the fall.
Registration is not required, but seating is limited and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
* Children still may register to receive a Summer Reading Starter Kit. Read books and earn coupons to Wendy's, Friendly's, 7-Eleven and McDonald's.
For more information, call 222-7371.

Even through summer has just arrived, it's not too early to make arrangements for day care for the coming school year. The Anne Arundel County Department of Recreation and Parks is offering a school-age child care program at Belle Grove Elementary School. This program includes before-school supervision beginning at 7 a.m. and after-school activities until 6 p.m.
Recreation and Parks is trying to provide a home-like atmosphere that will complement rather than duplicate a school program. The program aims to foster social interaction, community integration, physical development and intellectual growth. Any child age 5 through 12 can participate. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis.
The fees are: a monthly fee of $45 per child for early supervision -- 7 a.m. until 8:15 a.m. -- and $20 for each additional child. The after-school program -- 2:30 p.m. until 6 p.m. -- has a monthly fee of $140 per child, $110 for each additional child.

Registration fees are $30 for the first child, $50 for two or more children. A $10 concession fee is due at the time of registration.
