Sign-ups for the Summer Reading Club start June 27 and continue through Aug. 12 at the South Lake Tahoe Branch Library. This year’s theme is “Paws, Claws, Scales and Tales.”

The reading club is designed as an incentive for children to read during the summer vacation. Children will choose a prize from our Treasure Chest for each five hours they read or are read to by parents. Prizes include not only toys, games, stuffed animals and books, but also gift certificates donated by the South Lake Tahoe business community. When turning in their reading records, members of the Summer Reading Club may pick a gift certificate from Stone Cold Creamery, Round Table Pizza, the Recreation Center Swimming Pool, Magic Carpet Golf, Baskin-Robbins Ice Cream, El Papagayo Grill and Cafe, Port of Subs or Baja Fresh Mexican Grill. All the reading records turned in will be placed in a drawing for a Super Prize that takes place each week. These Super Prizes are on display at the checkout desk at the South Lake Tahoe Branch Library. The Summer Reading Club is open to all children through eighth-grade. It is sponsored by the Friends of the Library.

Be sure to visit the library this summer and join the fun. The South Lake Tahoe Branch Library is located at 1000 Rufus Allen Blvd., and is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday. For additional information call (530) 573-3185.
