Children’s book drive aids Colorado Flood Relief

Daily staff report

VAIL — This holiday season, the Town of Vail’s Art in Public Places is working with the Vail Public Library to collect new and gently used children’s books to aid Colorado Flood Relief.

Working with the Early Childhood Services of Boulder Youth and Family Division, Vail will distribute directly to those in the most desperate need. One parent who is spearheading the re-opening of a small Montessori school in Lyons that closed due to the floods said, “Anything is wonderful. We are starting from scratch.”

Drop off boxes for donated children’s books are located at the Vail Public Library, the Town of Vail Municipal Building, and the Town of Vail Public Works Administration building.

For more information contact Molly Eppard, Art in Public Places Coordinator or at 970-479-2344.
