Vail Library closed at least until July 12 as flash flood cleanup continues
The Town of Vail Public Library will remain closed through the weekend as repairs are continuing following Tuesday's flooding of Middle Creek. The earliest reopening for the library will be Tuesday, July 12.
Restoration crews are currently removing and replacing drywall along the baseboard of all affected areas and sanitizing flooring to prepare for the building's reopening. Flooding occurred in the entryway, atrium, Community Room, Children's Room and lower level, according to Librarian Lori Barnes. Preliminary clean up estimates are currently unavailable.
No library materials were damaged and books remaining from the library's annual book sale have been donated to the Eagle Valley Community Fund Rummage Sale. “We can't thank the community enough for the kindness and support we've received over the past few days,” said Barnes. “Many of our patrons stopped by or called to ask how they could help.”
While the main wing of the library is scheduled to reopen on Tuesday to include children's story hour, events previously booked in the Community Room for the remainder of the summer are being relocated to other venues to allow for additional repairs.
Please call the library at 479-2187 for information on hours, events and activities.
