Vail Daily letter: Thanks for support

Last week Vail Public Library, once again, participated in “Outside the Lines,” a global initiative designed to reintroduce libraries to their local communities and highlight the creativity and innovation happening in libraries. This year, Vail Public Library wanted to highlight not only our great library resources, but also to emphasize the importance of community partnerships to the library and its programs. During the week of Sept. 11-17, Vail Public Library got “Outside the Lines” with several of our community partners for events including story time and yoga with parents at Red Sandstone Elementary School and Vail Childcare; a free book giveaway at City Market; and distribution of babysitter backpacks to local lodges. The week wrapped up with a family scavenger hunt through Vail Village and Lionshead and a pizza party at the library for all participants.

We wish to thank all of our community partners who helped make Outside the Lines a success at Vail Public Library this year.

We wish to extend a special thank you to sponsor, Blue Moose Pizza, for generously providing a free pizza lunch to approximately 80 participants and volunteers. Thank you to our other sponsors: Vail Recreation District and Buddy Mentors. Thank you to those who hosted our clues: First Bank, the crew at Vail Fire Station 2, Imagination Station, Dobson Ice Arena , Blue Moose Pizza and the town of Vail.

And we would like to give a big shout to all of the members of the community who participated in the activities last week. We sincerely appreciate you!

Vail Public Library is proud to serve all members of the Eagle County community through its variety of resources and ongoing programming. For more information about our programs, call or visit us at the library or go online to We look forward to seeing you at next year’s Outside the Lines events!
