The Learning Curve at the Central Library

learning curveThere was always something special about going to the Central Library in downtown Indianapolis when I was growing up. The giant building and seemingly never ending shelves of books were always amazing, but after renovation in 2007, the Central Library has become even more awe-inspiring than ever before.

The location of this section is great because it means that, while we encourage our children to use “library voices”, if they don’t it’s learning curveok because they won’t be disturbing any adult visitors.

The Learning Curve is specifically designed for children and has inviting reading spaces and engaging activities scattered throughout. There are reading pods that allow children to watch a story being read aloud, a green screen and stage for acting out scenes, a baby area with toys, activity wall, and sound board, and a number of computers with age appropriate games.

We were lucky to learn about polar animals the day we attended, comparing the North and South Poles at an age appropriate level. Following each story time is a related craft, as well.

If you haven’t visited the Central Library’s Learning Curve get there ASAP! There’s even a café with light refreshments in case you get hungry.
