• Thinking about careers

  • Little libraries all over Lebanon

    Looking for something new to read? Now there’s an opportunity to pick up a new book just about anywhere you go in Lebanon. In an effort to promote reading and literacy, Joy Global has teamed up with Little Free Library to set up the small stands throughout the city.
    The way it works is if you see a library, take a look at the selection. If you see something you like, take it and read it. When you’re finished with the book, you can either let someone else borrow it, or return it to a Little Free Library. You can even leave other books there as well.

After all, he’s about to get on a sled that will reach up to 95 miles per hour and he’s wearing limited protective gear. He could be ejected. The sled could flip over. But all he’s thinking about is the push.
