Will's Lemonade Stand


Click here to Donate

This is Will's story. He is a 4 year old in Birmingham, Alabama . He learned about the library's drastic budget cuts and he decided to do something about it.

He set up a lemonade stand. It was a huge success. He brought in almost $40. He could have used the money for himself, but instead he presented it to Renee Blalock, the Director of the Birmingham Public Library.

With his donation, he requested that the librarian order books and a DVD. After purchasing these materials, the librarian told Will he could be the first to check out the books and DVD. This thrilled him.

Will's story was an inspiration to us. We hope that you will be inspired as well.

Heartwarming. More people should give.

I use the library almost every week. It is an important part of my life. We have informed, passionate, and friendly librarians which adds to my wonderful library experiences.
