Calling all world travelers! Join the Avon, Eagle and Gypsum Public Libraries for this year’s summer reading program, “One World, Many Stories” Students entering first through sixth grades are invited to join the libraries for eight weeks of summer reading fun. Summer readers will explore places from Oceania to Russia through folktales, regional crafts, world music, games, and other weekly activities.

Registration for summer reading begins at the district-wide kickoff celebrations on Tuesday at the Eagle and Gypsum Public Libraries, and Wednesday at the Avon Public Library. The Beaver Creek Children’s Theatre, which is celebrating its 25th birthday this summer, will perform skits and stories that celebrate a summer of reading and learning about world cultures.

“Our performances are very special times when parents and children get to spend some un-hurried time together,” says Brian Hall, head funnyman and creative director for Beaver Creek Children’s Theatre. “They get a chance to laugh together, learn a little more about each other and create some special memories they’ll remember for years to come. It’s so fun to watch as parents and their kids play and laugh together.”

When children sign up for the “One World, Many Stories” summer reading program, they will receive a free book bag with a schedule of events and a reading log to keep track of time spent reading. Prizes are awarded throughout the summer as children reach each of their targeted reading goals.

For information on dates and times for any of these programs, call the Avon Public Library at 970-949-6797, the Eagle Public Library at 970-328-8800, or the Gypsum Public Library at 970-524-5080, or visit our website at http://www.evld.org.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Library and Alpine Bank, all programs are free and open to the public.
