"Our library has had plenty of magic/magician programs over the years, but Gary Kantor's program stands out as one of the best!  Not only does he captivate the kids with his tricks but he engages the adults as well and keeps everyone laughing.  My patrons had the BEST time and I definitely recommend booking Gary to do the magic show and the workshop...it was truly worth it!"
Genoa Public Library – Jen Barton (Director)
 
"Thank you for the fantastic magic shows and workshops you presented at Cook Memorial Public Library District.  Your willingness to accommodate so many children in two separate shows on one day and then to return the next day to do smaller (but only slightly) workshops with two age ranges was so appreciated by our patrons and staff.  We received so many positive comments.  In my almost 15 years of children's programming, I've rarely seen anyone with the great rapport you have with audiences large and small, young and old.  You did a great job and I've recommended you to other libraries."
Cook Memorial Library (Libertyville) – Debbie Colodny (Children's Programming Coordinator)
 
"Gary Kantor is an amazing teacher and talented magician and I am hiring him again. He is really skilled and patient with children at all learning levels and the kids checked out all of our magic books after the show. His program is well designed and organized and he is very professional to work with. His program was original, creative and his delivery was enthusiastic and warm but he also had full control over the kids keeping them engaged and rapt with his magic. I highly recommend Gary as a teacher and entertainer!"
Morton Grove Library – Leslie Marley (Youth Programming Coordinator)
