All Storytimes in blue will feature books, special guests, and activities to help highlight disabilities both on the page and within our community!

Magic Corner Seeking Donations for New Downtown Mural
The Magic Corner is preparing to have a magical mural painted for all to enjoy.
The owner Dr. Kenneth P. Ladd has been doing magic for over 50 years now. By holding yearly Magic Day Camps, and offering private lessons, he has helped children and youth build up their confidence, increase their communication skills, and foster their creativity. Over the years he has also teamed up with Wauseon and surrounding area schools to bring awareness to the dangers of burgs and how to increase kids’ self-esteem and decision-making skills via magic.
He has also been a member of the Wauseon Chamber of Commerce for the past 6 years.
Inside this one building at 113, S. Fulton St.-you can find The Magic Corner magic shop, The Birch Theater, and The Vanishing Magic Museum. As of recently, the Vanishing Magic Museum has brought our town of Wauseon national recognition by appearing on Collectors Call on MeTV.
Next year marks the 10th anniversary of The Magic Corner located at 113 S. Fulton St. and 29 years in downtown Wauseon.
Please help us to bring this beautiful mural to life to celebrate!
The mural's name will be “It’s Magic in Wauseon”. It will be magic-related featuring Houdini, Birch, Blackstone Sr., Dr. Ladd, and his great-grandson apprentice Aiden Franz-Donato. It will also have special effects that will only show up at nighttime! The mural will be 36’ x 50’ in size.

Downtown Wauseon Association Mission Statement
The purpose of the Wauseon Downtown Association is to promote a vital community through marketing, promoting special events and development of leadership in the downtown district. Our organization meets to promote the downtown area, member businesses, and the community at large.
Membership in the Wauseon Downtown Association will be composed of merchants, restaurant owners, business leaders, non-profits, property owners and advocates to the downtown district.
A Personal Invitation From WDA President, James Kerr
I arrived in Fulton County in 1959 at the age of four.
My parents, Robert and Marcia Kerr brought their family of
four boys to start the Blue Skies Orchard at the former
McConkey farm just north of town.
Like so many who grew up outside of town, we came to
the downtown area to go to school and church and to shop. In the summer we played ball under the lights at the diamonds by Harmon Field, and on really hot days we swam at the Wauseon Public Pool at Reighard Park. The Homecoming was a social highlight in the summer. Santa visited the downtown in December while the star at the south end of Fulton Street and the live, colorfully lighted trees at every pole greeted the downtown shoppers.
I joined the Wauseon Downtown Association because I believe that the historic downtown must continue to be the focus of our community. Change is a constant in our lives together, yet amid these changes some historic aspects must be conserved, valued, and restored.
Together, with advocates and volunteers from our merchants, clubs, organizations, and churches, the Wauseon Downtown Association is investing in the future. We need the support of many friends who help to make the Wauseon Strawberry Festival, the Farmers' Market, the Christmas Parade, the Wauseon Window Wonderland Competition, and the Wauseon Downtown Chocolate Walk possible. Stay in touch and join us in sponsoring these events and more.
