LIbrary will offer summer programs

The South Lake Tahoe Branch Library will offer a variety of exciting programs for children during summer vacation. Summer Activities will kick off at 2 p.m. June 29 with Ed Middleton presenting his combination magic and puppet show. The show is full of fun and laughter for the entire family. The program will include magic, comedy and puppets. Programs will take place at 2 p.m. every Friday and are free.

The library will sponsor Dharma and the Bats on July 6, The Coyote Puppet Theater will present “Are We There Yet” with songs and puppets on July 13 and songwriter and storyteller Francie Dillon will tell “The Adventures of Brer Rabbit” with a modern-day twist. Summer Activities will conclude on July 27 with crafts and a party at the library.

In addition to Summer Activities the Summer Reading Program will be offered. This year’s theme is “Get Buggy for Books.” Registration for the reading club started June 26 and will continue throughout the summer. The reading club is designed as an incentive for youths to read during summer vacation by receiving prizes for books read. At registration participants will be given a card to keep track of all books read. The final day of the reading club is Aug. 17. The Summer Reading Club and Summer Activities are sponsored by the Friends of the Library.

The South Lake Tahoe Branch Library is located at 1000 Rufus Allen Blvd. The library is open 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
