The Eagle Valley Library District was established November 3, 1992, by a vote of the Eagle County electorate. The District operates under the laws of the State of Colorado and is governed by a Board of Trustees appointed by the Eagle County Board of County Commissioners. The District is comprised of three libraries; Avon, Eagle and Gypsum. The population within the District boundaries is approximately 42,000 and 65% of households have access to the Internet at home. The major industry in the area is skiing. Vail Ski Resort is adjacent to the District and Beaver Creek is within the service limits. Like many resort areas the population increases significantly during the ski season resulting in the libraries serving many visitors, seasonal residents, and second homeowners in addition to the year-round population. The District offers a wide array of programming and materials to serve citizen and visitor needs including a collection of 294,744 items, adult, teen and children’s programs, public Internet access stations, Wi-Fi access, a literacy outreach program, maker space and meeting rooms. The total door count of library users for all three locations in 2022 was 251,437 and the circulation (checkout) of materials totaled 324,765.


The Eagle Valley Library District (the District) seeks proposals for a comprehensive Facilities Master Plan. The focus of the Facilities Master Plan is to identify space needs and options to optimize and expand library facilities within the District’s legally defined service area that encompasses the majority of Eagle County except for Vail, Basalt and El Jebel. The resulting plan will include a determination of capital needs, potential financial resources and service levels associated with each option. The successful consultant will assist in facilitating a public awareness and a community input process to better determine taxpayers/residents service and facility needs. The successful consultant will also determine the best geographic locations and size for potential new facilities to serve the District’s growing population. In addition to information provided by the District management, the District’s 2022-2025 Strategic Plan, 2021 Community Survey and OrangeBoy Market Analysis will be used for guidance. The District intends to use the Facilities Master Plan for up to the next ten years.
