Japanese paperfolding to be discussed

Origami will be featured Aug. 2 during the summer reading program special event at the Lake Tahoe branch of the Douglas County Library. The program will begin at 1:30 p.m. at the library, U.S. Highway 50 and Warrior Way in Zephyr Cove Park. Adults and children are welcome and parents may help younger children with their project. Everyone will take home a project.

Dennis Little has volunteered at the library for many years, sharing his hobby of Japanese paperfolding. Little tells the history of Japanese paperfolding and shares many of his projects. Among the items Little has taught participants to make are fish, Olympic medals, boxes, cranes and books.

“Reading Road Trip, U.S.A.” is the theme for the 2001 summer reading program. There is still time to register and finish the program. For more information call the Lake Tahoe Branch Library at (775) 588-6411.s
