Alpacas at Rapid City Public Library

RAPID CITY, S.D. – A few fluffy friends visited the Rapid City Public library on Monday. Three alpacas from the Caputa Alpaca and Guest Ranch were the special guests. 

Over 100 people came out to spend time with the gentle animals. Attendees learned about where alpacas come from and what they are used for.

Alpacas are from South American countries such as Peru, Bolivia, and Ecuador. Once a year they are sheared to make wool and fleece products.

After the presentation guests were welcome to feed and pet the alpacas. The library also offered a number of alpaca themed crafts and a raffle to win a 3-D printed alpaca family.

This was the first time the library hosted this event and based on the turnout it will not be the last.
