Event Description

Come 'read up a storm!' with our newest book discussion! Join librarians from both the LPL and LJH as we discuss:

The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind by William Kamkwamba

William Kamkwamba was born in Malawi, a country withered by drought and hunger. William had read about windmills in a book called Using Energy, and he dreamed of building one that would bring electricity and water to his village and change his life. Although his neighbors called him crazy, William refused to let go of his dreams, forging an unlikely contraption and small miracle that made him an inspiration to those around the world. Attendees who read the book and participate in the group book review at the program will receive 3 hours of community service.

The snacks provided may not be suitable for those with food allergies.

Registration begins October 16 at 9:30 A.M.

This program will take place in the library at the Longwood Junior High School. A late bus will be provided at 4pm, but you must be registered to attend.



Snacks provided may not be suitable for those with food allergies.
