“My name is Alex Blumenthal and I am a fifth grader at Overton Elementary School in Salisbury, NC. I have 1 twin brother, 2 dogs and 3 horses.
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.”
