Naturalist visits Vail library

Daily staff report
Vail, CO Colorado

Vail Public Library is calling all dreamers. The 2012 Summer Reading Program – Dream Big: READ – continues this week in the Vail Recreation District community room at the Lionshead Welcome Center. The guest speaker this week is naturalist Lara Carlson, of Walking Mountains Science Center in Avon. Carlson promises a fun, interactive and educational tour of the night sky. Look forward to learning stories about the constellations and cosmic nuances specific to our environment.

This event will be held at 2 p.m. on Tuesday. Attendees will meet at the Lionshead Welcome Center. Enter through Vail Recreation District’s Imagination Station, which is located on the southwest end of the second floor.

The 2012 Summer Reading Program takes place from 1 to 3 p.m. on every Tuesday afternoon through Aug. 7. All elementary students, local residents and visitors are encouraged to join the free reading program. With quality entertainment, reading activities and library fun – and a few prizes for incentives – the goal is to keep students reading at their current level or better all summer long. Participation in a summer reading program prepares students for a successful return to school in the fall.

This summer, with the Dream Big theme, the library offers a program that focuses on nocturnal activities – stargazing, ghost stories, magic and music.

Registration is free and available at the event or in advance at the mini-library in Dobson Ice Arena.
