John Lee Love invented a portable pencil sharpener that captured the shavings – what we use today. Teens and tween can make their own matchbox “book” sharpener modeled after Love’s innovation. Craft supplies available to take home in the Lafayette Lib. Teen Center on Feb. 22.
Throughout February, check out “30 Days of Black Innovators” (let’s pretend February has 30 days) in the Lafayette Library’s Teen Center for spotlights on more Black inventors, tinkerers, and researchers who changed and are changing the world.
