“It’s a Happy Talent to Know How to Play” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

For a kid, play is the first basic level of knowledge and understanding. United States researchers have analyzed the cognitive benefits playing has on the brain of a young child. Not only does active role playing help children develop communication skills, but it provides them with an opportunity to dream and grow aspirations as they continue to develop. Specific skills are developed through a child’s playing ability, such as sharing, resolving conflict, and leadership.

With your help, you can advance the child play facilities located at Wagnalls. Your donation can make a vast difference in the lives of many children in the Columbus area

“A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.” – Marcus Garvey, Political Leader

The Wagnalls Memorial has a rich history that goes back for decades. Each piece of architecture and artwork in the structure has meaning behind it. The stone that was used during the construction of the building laid directly behind the estate. Wagnalls has the very town of Lithopolis built into it.

Throughout the building there are wooden sculptures of owls. The carvings were added to the Wagnalls Memorial because during the erection of the site, there was a tree that fell down that had baby owls in it. Mabel chose to commemorate the owls by presenting the wooden sculptures in the original library.

With your help, we can preserve the very history that Wagnalls was built upon. Your donation will go directly to maintain the educational center that has served thousands of people in the surrounding communities
