  About this Web Site


The Kids Zone web site were originally created for the El Paso Public Library in El Paso, Texas in 2001. They were first hosted on the free Yahoo! GeoCities. This free web hosting service closed down in 2009.

The original Kids Zone pages are still archived on the (GeoCities Archive) website because the organization thought these pages were ".. worthy and unique scientific sources or are of great public interest as well as those, which are historically interesting or just representing the 90's website culture and style."

In 2003 the Library Kids Zone was finally hosted on the El Paso Public Library's website within the City of El Paso's website.  In 2009, the Library Kids Zone website and all of the information was updated.

In 2012, the website was removed from the library's website.  The library sadly no longer has or wanted a Kid Zone....... or ANY web pages specifically dedicated to children.

In 2012, I retired from the library system. No longer was there anyone to advocate for web sites for children.  The library also lost their

In October 2013, I decided to revive some of the pages from the Kids Zone and host them on this web site.  The pages with links to outside web sites were reviewed and updated.  I owned the copyright on all of the dinosaur images because they were created by me on my home computer on my own time.
