"Budget cuts meant a DeKalb County library branch was set to close at the end of this month, but then a 12-year-old boy stepped in.
It was a first person civics lesson for 12-year-old home schooled sixth grader Sekondi Landry. The DeKalb County boy spent hours at the library everyday and he stepped up to save it.
… ‘I got a petition and I got about 100 people to sign it,’ said Landry. ‘This was the first sign I made so I would hold it up like this.’
Landry made an even bigger sign and went to speak before the library board. The board changed their minds and voted to keep the library open.”
