Story Hour – Ron’s Big Mission

Come and enjoy Mrs. Judie’s story hour, reading the book about nine-year-old Ron McNair, who dreams of becoming a pilot.

Mrs. Judie chose this book in celebration of Black History Month.

About the book:

Nine-year-old Ron loves going to the Lake City Public Library to look through all the books on airplanes and flight. Today, Ron is ready to take out books by himself. But in the segregated world of South Carolina in the 1950s, Ron’s obtaining his own library card is not just a small rite of passage—it is a young man’s first courageous mission. Here is an inspiring story, based on Ron McNair’s life, of how a little boy, future scientist, and Challenger astronaut desegregated his library through peaceful resistance.
