Posted at 6:30 PM, Dec 02, 2015

The Main Nashville Public Library debuted its newly renovated children's department in a ribbon cutting ceremony Wednesday.

Fun, new, pieces were added to the department including a giant reading fort wrapped in the buildings of the Nashville skyline, a Ryman-inspired puppet stage, toddler tunnels, and a literacy-themed climbing wall.

Mayor Megan Barry was at the library along with Nashville families for its re-opening.

During the free event, families and Wishing Chair puppeteers led a mini-parade from the old, temporary children's space to the new one.

After the ribbon cutting, children and parents explored the learned about technology in the tween "alley," a brand-new makerspace for children ages 8-12.
