VAIL VALLEY, Colorado – Explore the worlds of dance, music, art, theater, storytelling and more this summer in Colorado’s Vail Valley with The Eagle Valley Library District’s summer reading program, “Be Creative.”

Elementary school children are invited to join the Avon, Eagle and Gypsum libraries for eight weeks of summer reading. Library staff have lined up a full, free schedule of events, including stories, crafts, games, music and movies.

Registration for summer reading begins at the district-wide kickoff celebrations on Monday, at the Eagle and Gypsum libraries, and Wednesday, at the Avon library.

The Beaver Creek Children’s Theater will perform their show “Tales from the Land of What If,” a creative romp of epic proportions. The Children’s Theater will perform at the libraries on the following dates and times:

• Monday, 11 a.m.: Eagle Public Library

• Monday, 1 p.m.: Gypsum Public Library

• Wednesday, 1 p.m.: Avon Public Library

When children sign up for the “Be Creative” summer reading program, each receives a free book bag with a schedule of events and a reading log to keep track of time spent reading. Prizes will be awarded throughout the summer as children reach each of their targeted reading goals.
