Description

Vail Public Library offers access to information resources of many types for the needs of Vail’s guests, residents, businesses and schools.

The Vail Public Library not only offers over 52,000 volumes of fiction & non-fiction, it also offers a fireplace lounge for sitting and relaxing; DVDs, books & music on CD for checkout; just under 300 magazine subscriptions; downloadable Audio, eBooks, eMagazines, Music and Video; word processing & Internet computers; free wireless internet access; a separate children’s area; a state-of-the-art Community Room; and special programs for all ages such as adventurers, authors, artists, musicians and technology-related topics.

When the library was built in 1983 and first opened its doors in the current location, we had the largest green roof west of the Mississippi River and employed many of the best-practice green design principles of the time, such as day-lighting, an earth-sheltered roof with a thermally efficient structure, and fantastic integration with and visual connection to the wonderful site. The library, now 35 years old, is still a leader in green design and an important and beautiful icon for the Town of Vail.

The Vail Public Library is open seven days a week from 10am to 8pm Monday through Thursday and 11am to 6pm Friday through Sunday.

The library is located on the in-town bus route across from Dobson Ice Arena at the east end of Lionshead (292 W. Meadow Dr.)
