When you don’t have to wait for the big game: Portland’s library opens its doors to the public, even if you can’t play it
Posted June 20, 2019 05:53:00 Portland, Oregon (Bleacher Report) The Multnomah County Library of Portland is opening its doors on Friday for a first-ever public screening of a new animated film.
The film is called “The Book of Life,” and it’s about a young boy who’s obsessed with reading and learning, but has a hard time keeping up with his own time.
“It’s about the journey of growing up, and the need for self-control and independence,” said David Kriegel, the Library’s senior curator for children and families.
“The book is a celebration of our shared humanity, of being ourselves, and our desire to explore, explore, and explore.”
“The Bazaar of Books” is being produced by Portland-based independent animation company Cartoon Network.
“When I first saw it, I was in awe,” said Jennifer DeBello, who has been involved in the project for nearly three years.
“There was just something about it that was so much different than anything I had ever seen before.”
DeBella said that she was initially apprehensive about the film because she hadn’t seen a book this ambitious before.
But she has been able to learn a lot about the story behind it.
“I learned about how this project came about and the people behind it, and also how they went through some tough times,” she said.
“They came through with grace and humor and determination, and they came through in the end.”
A book with a new, original title was a hit with audiences in 2017, and “The Library of Books,” a children’s book, is the second best-selling title of 2017, according to Nielsen BookScan.
The animated film is based on a novel by Mark Twain, who is also the creator of the popular children’s series “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.”
“I’ve always loved cartoons,” said DeBola.
“And I was a huge fan of the original ‘Book of Life,’ which I love to read and I love the stories.
So I was excited to see that book come to life.”
“You can find the book in a variety of locations around Portland and the city,” said Kriegelt, the curator for Children’s and Family Services and Multnomac County Libraries.
“This is the first time we’ve ever done a screening of the book at a library.
It’s very exciting and I think it’s going to really show the potential for this project to really be a positive, positive example of children’s literacy.”
“Book of life” will also be available to view at the Portland Public Library, the Multnomakan Library, and other libraries.
This isn’t the first animated film to be released at a public library.
In 2017, “Bookworm” became a popular hit at the New York Public Library.
“Bookworms” was directed by and starring Will Ferrell and was written by the late Mark Wahlberg.
“Bazaar of books” was produced by Cartoon Network and stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Adam McKay, Chris Parnell, and Kate McKinnon.
“You know, it’s not every day you can see an animated movie, especially in this age of social media, and I’m excited that people are looking for this book,” said John Pappas, the Portland Library’s director of programming and development.
“We want to bring these books to a whole new audience.
It was a very emotional, emotional journey for me to see people reading this book.
We want to encourage them to do the same.
It may not be what everyone is interested in, but we’re happy to have this opportunity.”
“This film is a fantastic opportunity to bring this book to life in a way that’s different and different from the way we read it,” said Pappes.
“A lot of people will be looking at it and thinking, ‘What can I do to read this book?
Where can I go to read it?'”
Portland-area libraries are also planning to expand their “Bookofbooks” programming.
“Our libraries are going to be adding more programming,” Kriegels said.
The Portland Public Libraries are partnering with the Multsomah County Libraries to offer the book to the Portland public in 2017.
The Multsoma County Library will be the first public library to offer “TheBookofBooks” on a daily basis.
