LPL displays ‘Ron’s Big Mission’ for Storywalk

The new book for the Storywalk is now on display at the G. Martin Kenney Park. The book, “Ron’s Big Mission,” focuses on the childhood of astronaut Ron McNair. One summer day in 1959, 9-year-old McNair, who dreams of becoming a pilot, walks into the Lake City, South Carolina, public library and insists on checking out some books, despite the rule that only white people can have library cards. Starting at the Jennie Thompson Garden, this Storywalk runs along the mile-long track through 16 different stations.
