As our sweet Ranger is growing, we are learning how to explore Nashville in a whole new way. We love that this city has so many amazing options for us to get him involved in. One I was pleasantly surprised to find so impressive is the Nashville Public Library Downtown and all of the other branches throughout town.
When we walked into the Children’s floor, it was like being transported to a world made just for him. For an indoor option of activities it had so much to offer. He played on the train table and all of the other little activity tables set up, we noticed the rock wall and the mini city play structure in the middle gave him plenty to explore. Not only that, but the rooms designated for art and crafts activites and the theater for puppet shows and story time were like a fairy tale. On top of all of that, there’s a courtyard that you can explore as well!
After seeing all that it had to offer the children, I was curious to see what other programs the library had to offer. I was pleasantly surprised when we discovered that they have programs for all ages. Click here for all of the details!
Since we are involved in the music world here in Nashville, I’m super excited that they offer Studio NPL as Ranger grows older to hone in on some of the many aspects of the music field.
“In April 2015, Nashville Public Library opened its sixth Studio NPL location at the Main Library, a 2,500-square-foot space with three production booths for video editing, audio editing and recording, a performance space, gaming consoles, robotics stations, 3-D printers and more. In addition, five other Studio NPL spaces were opened at the Green Hills, Bellevue, Southeast, Madison and East branch libraries, and a mobile Studio environment was created to reach public schools, community centers and other organizations whose limited resources prevent a visit to a fixed Studio space.”
All of this being said, I want you to find out what programs the NPL offers that would be beneficial to you and your family, that why it’s…..
I would love for you and your family to see what the library has to offer, so I’m doing a giveaway with some friends to the Picnic with the Library for your family this Sunday.
