Hip-hop music with a message in Vail

Daily staff report
Vail, CO Colorado

The Vail Public Library will continue its Summer Reading Program on Tuesday from 1 to 3 p.m. in the library’s community room. This week the Vail Public Library will present a musical performance by Littleague, along with stories, games and art.

“The concept is fun, high-energy hip-hop geared towards children,” explains Neil McIntyre, Littleague’s creator. “The Little League’s mission is to provide positive, educational and developmentally appropriate messages.”

The reading program is for children ages 6-11. It is offered by the Vail Public Library at no charge to local children and visiting guests. Parents are welcome. Stories, games, art and crafts will begin the event for the first hour and the musicians will take the stage at 2 p.m. Families are welcome during the musical performance and children under six must be accompanied by an adult.

Parents can register children in grades first through fifth at the door to receive a summer reading packet that includes, among other things, a reading log for documenting the time their child spends reading this summer so that they may receive prizes. The summer reading program occurs every Tuesday at the library, except July 6, through Aug. 10. For more information, call 970-479-2179 or visit http://www.vaillibrary.com.
