Kids Programs

NOVEMBER 15 – DECEMBER 3

For our neighbors that have fallen on difficult times, Vail Public Library will be hosting a toy and diaper drive.

This is a great way to show babies and children how much the community cares about them and share the joy of the giving season.

We will be collecting new, unopened diapers in all sizes, baby cream and baby wipes.
New Gift Suggestions for Ages 0-18: Gift Cards, Books (Fiction and Non-Fiction), Action Figures, Stuffed Animals, Outdoor Gear, Smart Devices, Art Supplies, Craft Sets, Sports Equipment, Remote-Controlled Cars, Games, DVDs, Building Sets/Legos, Barbie’s, Dolls.

PLEASE DO NOT WRAP THE GIFTS

You can drop your donation during library open hours.


Santa and the Babies

This is a wonderful opportunity for a photo with Santa in a calm and casual environment.

We offer this to children under 3 years who will benefit from a daytime, playful and casual Santa experience.

Parents are required to wear a facemask throughout the event.
