Summer Reading dates

Pricing for public libraries is above and as with our school programs, discounts are available for group bookings as well as savings on travel.

I am based in Virginia Beach, VA. I’ve tried to make the travel fees as simple and straightforward as possible. The travel fees listed below include all gas/mileage, food and lodging expenses. I’m happy to tell you that many of my libraries and schools NEVER pay any travel fees! You can also opt-out of paying travel fees by Block Booking! Just call the office and ask how.

Mileage fees for the programs are as follows: Start navigation from 260 Kenley Rd. Virginia Beach, VA 23462

Within 25 miles = $0
26-35 miles = $40
36-50 miles = $80
51 – 60 miles = $110
61-75 miles + = $125
76 – 100 Miles = $150
Over 100 miles = $2.00 per mile

Remember that we are willing to waive the mileage fee for your area if you help us schedule more libraries/schools in your area.

Earl Long’s Reading Show impacted our students by getting them excited about reading. The show was fun, high energy and had a lot of audience participation. It was great for all age groups. His message was to keep reading, learning and growing. It was a very positive message.”
Bethany Jones – Youth Service Librarian – Waynesboro Public Library
We loved having Earl Long come and present his Winter Wonder Reading show with magic and puppets. He encouraged us all to read by keeping the audience engaged the whole time. He had something for the kindergartner all the way to the fifth grader. It was a wonderful time being excited about reading. Thanks Earl. We will surly have you back!.”
