A Message from The Chairman, May 2017

One of the most asked questions I’ve received over the last few years from IJA members has been “Is JUGGLE magazine ever going to be available digitally?”

Well, at long last I am pleased to say that the entire collection of JUGGLE magazine issues is now officially available digitally! The IJA has partnered up with Lybrary.com to bring you professionally digitized and organized JUGGLE content in a single consolidated package. We knew that Lybrary.com was a good fit since they recently started offering the entire digital catalog of MAGIC magazine and already had a section on their website with a number of historical juggling books. IJA members receive a 25% discount on the JUGGLE magazine package by using the coupon code found on our Vendor Discount Program page.

Speaking of the Vendor Discount Program, we recently updated our vendor list with a few new deals. In addition to Lybrary, we have also added fire prop maker Fyregear to the program (IJA members save 15% off all orders).

Hop on over to our Vendor Discount Program page and login with your membership information to take advantage of these great member-only deals, including the new JUGGLE magazine digital package!

Next month, on June 17th, is World Juggling Day. This year’s World Juggling Day is especially noteworthy, because it marks the exact 70th anniversary of the founding of the IJA on June 17th, 1947. Stop on over to our newly re-designed WJD page, check out the design on this year’s T-shirt (now available for purchase), and see what events are happening near you. If you are hosting a WJD party, don’t forget to register your event so that others can find it.

Looking forward to reading magazines on a digital screen and partying like it’s 1947,

Nathan Wakefield
IJA Chairman
