Alamosa Public Library News



The San Luis Valley Origami group (also known as SALVO) folds a variety of paper models every month.
The fun day of folding paper will be held at the Alamosa Public Library, located at 300 Hunt Ave. in Alamosa.
We will now feature a new meeting structure. Starting at 10 a.m., there will be easy-to-intermediate folding for both beginning and returning folders. Following immediately, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., there will be advanced folding instruction offered, featuring more complex models. For children 12 years old and younger, parents are requested to stay with
their child.

The meetings are free, and origami paper will be supplied. For more information, or to start folding models on your own, please see our Facebook page at (San Luis Valley Origami)
See you there!
