We are fully aware of the budgeting shortfalls that libraries experience, especially for special programming. Toby's life long goal is to make people happier. His shows are just one way he accomplishes that goal. Another is to work in conjunction with program coordinators to offer the best program package rates he can assemble. A great show at a great price will make you happy, right!

Multiple Appearance Agreement Discounts

In addition to your summer reading program, perhaps you wish to add to your city festival, local parade or school district. Toby could present his award-winning educational assembly at the elementary school with an added function to excite and register kids for the summer reading program. Then Toby returns later to present his library show. This ultimately increases the reading program participation and attendance at the library show.
Many other appearance combinations can, and have been arranged.  Additional information available here

Appearance dates do not have to be consecutive for eligibility.
