Basic Magic Tricks


Sensory Friendly Librarian Practices

This event will allow for participants to be on camera and/or microphone to ask Cody questions and have him assist you with learning tricks! 

In this one hour session, touring library performer Cody Clark combines his experiences as a professional magician and as an autistic self-advocate to teach librarians 30 minutes of basic magic effects which can be found in books from Non-Fiction section 793.8 and 30 minutes of best practices for librarians to ensure their libraries and services are as sensory-friendly and accommodating to autistic patrons as possible.

You can use these and more ideas as part of your tween & teen summer library programming! Made possible by funding from LSTA.


Cody Clark



Cody Clark is a 26 year old professional magician/autistic self-advocate from Louisville, KY. He tours libraries across the Midwest and upper South with three main shows: A Different Way of Thinking: a 45 minute show for ages 8 & up which combines magic, comedy, and storytelling to share with audiences what living with autism is like for him, Conductor Cody: a 30 minute show for ages 3-8 in which he's a magical railway conductor taking libraries audiences on adventures in railroad history, steam engine science, and topics relevant to your library, and his Basic Magic Class, a 30 min.-1 hour program similar to what you'll be a part of during this virtual event. Speaking of virtual events, all of Cody's programs can be modified for virtual programming for your patrons at this time.
