Cresco Public Library presents a special program Thursday, July 20: 'The Rope Warrior: Rope Jumping Out of This World!' This program will take place at 7 p.m. July 20th at the Cresco United Methodist Church.

From his website,

'He may not be from another planet, but the rope jumping feats he performs are certainly out of this world. This is not your little sister's game of "Skip-To-My-Lou."

'The Rope Warrior -professional athlete/entertainer/author - is a lean, mean, jumping machine who executes stunts that most of us can't even imagine-using a jump rope, and is the current Guinness World Record holder for the most "Rump Jumps" (jumping rope while reclining on his bottom) in one minute: 56.'

Congratulations to Bella, grand prize winner at Children's Summer Reading Program!
