Thank you for supporting the summer reading program

It was a busy summer at the Lake Tahoe branch of Douglas County Public Library. Our summer reading programs ,”Make a Splash – READ @ Your Library” for children and “Make Waves @ Your Library” for teens were enhanced by the generosity of local businesses and community volunteers.

Round Table Pizza and Fatburger donated gift certificates to all who finished the reading program. Zephyr Cove Stables donated a horse ride as a grand prize. Safeway in the Round Hill Shopping Center donated a gift card to buy supplies for making ice cream for our pirate party. New York Pizza on Kingsbury Grade, Magic Carpet Golf Lake Tahoe, South Lake Tahoe Ice Arena, Tahoe Bowl and the Carson Valley Swim Center donated gift certificates for prizes.

Thank you to all of the volunteers who gave their time to make the summer reading programs a success. Their assistance with the programs was invaluable.

The Friends of Douglas County Library sponsored the Fratello Marionettes and “Bubble Lady” programs, and the Lego building contest. We couldn’t function without the Friends. They help to fund things we need, from prizes to programs.

Roseann Keegan publicized our events in the Tahoe Daily Tribune, including photos from our programs for the community to see.

Thank you to all of these people and businesses for enriching the lives of Douglas County children! The library could not have run such a well-received program without you.

Congratulations to all finishers of the “Make a Splash – READ @ Your Library” children’s program and “Make Waves @ your library” for teens. Great job!
