The new Central Library has everything a kid needs to have fun. In the children's area there is a multimedia room where they play movies through the day. There are also many tables where kids can play and interact with toys and each other. Several computers. All they need is a 1 hour guest pass or an adult's library card number. The large tablet-like touch screens get much attention since kids can play many different games in them. The best part of this new library is the outdoor balcony where kids can sit and quietly read their books.
The building itself is pretty interesting. It has floating stairs and a Tech petting Zoo and a rooftop garden with an awesome view.
We are very grateful that we have our own museum of Art. The Blanton Museum of Art is located just across from the Bob Bullock Museum, at the heart of the University of Texas at Austin. This is a great place to encourage kids to pay attention to their surroundings, to really look at things and to interact. While you can walk through galleries dedicated to European paintings and sculptures, you can also see much more modern art. There are some interactive exhibitions as well. There are also awesome children’s programs where they are allowed to create art of their own.
We love to spend time with your kids because every little thing becomes important and amazing. Every question sparks even more curiosity and every answer opens their minds to a whole new set of possibilities. They learn to challenge their bodies and to trust their strength. It is impossible not to fall in love with this amazing city when we see it through the eyes of these young explorers. The video shows things they love doing with us. We love our work and we want to share it with everyone!
Would you like to go to a goat ranch? How about a goat ranch turned zoo? The Austin Zoo started as a small farm with mostly domesticated animals. In 1990 it began rescuing wild animals until they became a non-profit sanctuary. Now they have over 300 animals in their 20 acre land.
