Kudo: South Lake Tahoe Library says thank you

The South Lake Tahoe Library just wrapped up our Summer Reading Club, which encourages children to read by rewarding them with prizes. We would like to thank the many businesses and organizations that donated to the library. Our theme was “Every Hero Has A Story,” and we had many local heroes who helped make our program a success.

Prizes that children could choose from included gift certificates from local businesses, including Applebee’s Restaurant, Baja Fresh Mexican Grill, Blue Dog Gourmet Pizza, Heavenly Village Cinema, Jamba Juice, Magic Carpet Golf, McDonalds, SLT Parks and Recreation Swimming Pool, and Tahoe Bowl. Thanks to the Raley’s NickelAid Community Giving Program, books were also purchased for prizes. Gaia-Licious Global Gift Boutique and Wildwood DIY Boutique donated gift certificates for the adult program as well. Thank you to all of these businesses for their generous donations!

Many other agencies and organizations supported the library, too. For our Local Superheroes Day the South Lake Tahoe Police Department, South Tahoe Refuse, and U.S. Forest Service’s wildland firefighters volunteered their time so children could meet some real life heroes. The Kiwanis Club of Lake Tahoe and Aktion Club members volunteered their time at our Kick Off Party, assisting with games and crafts. The South Tahoe Optimist Club generously sponsored the Wild Things, Inc. performance; and all other performances and prizes were made possible due to the wonderful support from the Friends of the Library.

On behalf of the South Lake Tahoe Library, I want to say thank you again to all of these businesses and organizations for so generously supporting our library and the community that we serve.
