The Austin Central Library is something to explore in awe. It is located at a prime spot along Lady Bird Lake with nice views on all sides. It cost around $125 million and has everything you could imagine a Library would have. Six stories, nearly 200,000 square feet, a three story clock with red grackles, a rooftop garden, a technology petting zoo, portables and MacBooks to check out on loan, a two story underground parking garage, and so much more. The building is full of light and people are everywhere to be seen, admiring the design and discovering their favorite reading locations. It will probably become one of my favorite spots in Downtown Austin to take a break and enjoy a book or magazine, so look for me there on some lazy weekend afternoon.
The Univesity Hills Branch of the Austin Public Library had a Kaiju event this afternoon. They showed a Godzilla movie on the wall, had a cool dude in costume for photos, arts and crafts for the kids, snacks, action figures, and books for everyone to enjoy. Yes, it was totally a nerd fest…
This bronze sculpture called “La Fiesta” by Dan Pogue, can be found just in front of the Round Rock Public Library. It is a pretty fun piece of art, and it can be yours for a small price. 🙂
It rained all day today, and then it rained some more. After work, I find myself in the Round Rock Public Library, where they were holding a demonstration of a 3D printer in action. I rounded the corner, and found this piece of Art (number 923 out of 2500). Pretty cool, and totally appropriate for today’s weather.
It was too wet to play.
So we sat in the house
All that cold, cold, wet day.”
Two sets of keys – one for lower case and one for caps. I present to you the Smith Premier 4.
In the spirit of trying something new, I attended the Excessive Noise Concert in the Fine Arts Library at UT. It was fun, and all the musicians were great!
This art exhibit at the library caught me by surprise. The artist is Debra King-Isaacs and she is based in Round Rock. She uses “vintage materials salvaged from old homes, farms and ranches across Texas.” Check it out!
