Critters take over library

Naturalist Julie Allen will present “Nature’s Critters” at 2 p.m. Friday at the South Lake Tahoe Library. Allen and her animal friends have visited tens of thousands of children and adults over the past 10 years, helping them to better understand and appreciate the world around them.

Children delight in meeting and touching live animals and seeing them through Allen’s eyes as wonderful members of our living family. This educational live animal presentation is a great way to introduce children to the diversity of our natural world. Join us for this exciting hands-on program.

Sign-ups continue through July for the Summer Reading Club, which is designed as an incentive for children to read during summer vacation by rewarding with prizes for time spent reading. The South Lake Tahoe Branch Library is at 1000 Rufus Allen Blvd. The library 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.

Fund started to aid kayak shop

A fund has been established at the Tahoe City branch of Bank of America for Tahoe City Kayak, whose business was lost to fire over the July 4 holiday weekend.

The fire was intentionally set to cover a theft. Unfortunately, Tahoe City Kayak does not have fire insurance to cover the estimated $40,000 to $50,000 retail loss. The fund has been set up for people who are interested in donating and the company would appreciate donations of any size to help them get back on their feet.

Donations may be made to the Tahoe City Kayak Fire Fund, Tahoe City branch of America, account number 06093-40329. For more information call (530) 581-6828.
