Library block party returns

Monday, April 25, 2022 by Tai Moses

Children and their parents will be thrilled to learn that the Kids Block Party is returning in-person to the Austin Central Library after last year’s all-virtual event. This Library Foundation indoor/outdoor event “celebrates children, literacy and learning through play, with indoor and outdoor activities for kids aged toddler to tweens.” Along with musicians and yoga, the party features storytelling, arts and crafts, “friends from Austin Spurs, goody bags, and more.” The block party marks the launch of the library’s summer experience program for kids and adults called Austin Completely Booked, which includes “reading challenges and other experiences throughout the community over the summer. Attendees will be able to download an app or receive paper forms for logging summer reading and tracking challenge completion to earn prizes.” Find a full schedule of events here. Saturday, May 14, 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m., Austin Central Library, 710 W. César Chávez St.
