Kid's Portal - Escape into Knowledge
Help revitalize the Children’s Department at the Parry Sound Public Library with the launch of Kids’ Portal: Escape into Knowledge. Our goal with Kids’ Portal: Escape into Knowledge is to create a safe space that promotes creativity, inclusion and learning.
Our funding goals will allow us to breathe fresh life into an already well-loved community space. An enticing custom archway will be the entrance to the Kids’ Portal. This will be a unique visual entrance, highlighting our Northern Ontario culture.
Play-learning spaces are integral to creating a positive library experience and literacy play tools will help children acquire a firm foundation of general knowledge and allow them to become successful readers.
The Midnight Bargain by C.J. Polk is a compelling romantic fantasy about a young sorceress named Beatrice, who has to choose between supporting her family by getting married and having the freedom to become a mage. She lives in a patriarchal world where men are free to practice magic and women are locked into a marital collar, which cuts off their powers to protect unborn children. Beatrice longs to be the first great female magician, but what will she choose? Will she devastate her family and lose the man she loves or will she sacrifice her magic and dreams?
