    Kids and teens have the whole fourth floor to themselves, and the grown-ups can rejuvenate at Inversion Coffee House on the first floor. Powered by ParentsConnect.com

    The Central Library is lots of fun for adults and kids. If you don't mind walking, park all day for 2 dollars at Travis & Lamar. Also, this location is closed on Fridays. No bueno!
