Kids’ block party at the Austin library

Wednesday, April 17, 2019 by Tai Moses

The Austin Public Library and the Library Foundation are throwing a block party – planned especially for kids. This free event celebrates literacy and learning through play and is intended for children ages 0-12 and their families. There’s so much fun stuff packed into this event that we don’t have room to list it all, but yoga at 10 a.m.; a scavenger hunt from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.; a nature walk along Shoal Creek from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.; capoeira at noon; and break dancing at 1:30 p.m. are just a few of the many activities planned. There will also be children’s book authors (Rosemary Wells!), crafts, musical performances, technology and creative play groups, and a family resource fair to round out the day. You’ll find the full schedule on the library’s website. The kids’ block party is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 27, at Austin Central Library, 710 W. Cesar Chavez.
