Alex Blumenthal – NC Congressional District 5 | View Video
Alex is from Salisbury, North Carolina and is a 5th grader at Overton Elementary School. His video details the essential value of libraries to him and all of North Carolina.
My hobbies include theater, reading, playing my trumpet and being active in Boy Scouts. I really enjoy technology and am efficient in the making of Imovies. I love school and am looking forward to middle school next year.
My favorite extra-curricular activity has been Elementary Battle of the Books because it has given me some of my best friends. I love to read because it can take me places I’ve never been and help me feel like I am doing things I’ve never done.
Going to Washington DC to rally Congress about the importance of libraries is one of the most important things I’ve done this year.”
