Vail Public Library to relocate during renovation

VAIL, Colorado – Beginning April 2, the Town of Vail Public Library will be moving to a temporary location while the building undergoes a $2 million interior renovation. Library services will be unavailable the week of April 2-6. The renovation will require a full closure of the existing building in anticipation of a grand reopening this summer.

Limited library services will be offered in the nearby multi-purpose room on the east end of Dobson Ice Arena on West Meadow Drive beginning April 7. Services will include access to the library’s new fiction and non-fiction titles, travel books, DVDs and an assortment of audiobooks on CD. A small inventory from the children’s collection will also be available. The space will be equipped with public computers for Internet access as well as free Wi-Fi. For patrons who prefer to use the library from home or work, numerous online services will continue to be offered including access to a wide assortment of proprietary databases as well as downloadable audiobooks, videos, music and eBooks. Customary programs such as the weekly story hour and the monthly book discussion group meetings will take place in the temporary location at Dobson, while the annual Summer Reading Program will be held on the second level in the Lionshead Welcome Center.

Hours for the temporary location at Dobson will be 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday through Sunday. Patrons looking to schedule meetings that would normally be held in the library’s community room should call the town offices at 970-479-2100 to inquire about the availability of other meeting rooms.

For more information, call 970-479-2184.
