The evening wind passed through the orchard behind the Xuejun Cultural Compound, and 13-year-old Tian Le and his companions immersed themselves in reading, until the "dwarf" uncle urged them to get up reluctantly, register and borrow the book home.

“家里太吵了,这里安静,有很多好看的书,还可以画画、打羽毛球,叔叔还指导我们写作业,我和同学放学后都喜欢来这里。”田乐说。田乐是甘城子中心学校六年级学生,学校因疫情尚未开学,她每天上完网课就和朋友直奔学军文化大院读书。

孩子们眼中的“小矮人”叔叔,正是宁夏回族自治区青铜峡市邵岗镇甘城子村学军文化大院的主人吴学军。今年50岁的他,由于患有先天性小儿麻痹和侏儒症,走路有些跛,个子矮小。尽管身体残疾,吴学军却凭自己对读书的一腔热情,在村里办起了文化大院。

The reporter saw in this cultural compound with a two-story building that a long table and more than 5,000 books were placed on the first floor, and it was also equipped with cultural and sports equipment such as chess boards, skipping ropes, and painting tools.

“Although I am physically disabled, I can do what others can do,” Wu said.

吴学军自幼爱读书,初中毕业后,他做过甘草生意,开过三轮车送货,当过电商客服,数年的打拼让他的腰包渐渐鼓了起来,但心中另一个念头却越来越强烈。

"Reading makes my spirit strong, and I want to provide a spiritual and cultural place for the children and the elderly in the village, and put more than 600 books of my own in the cultural compound for people to borrow for free."Wu Xuejun said that his idea was supported by the local government department, and the Qingtongxia Disabled Persons' Federation and the library added more than a dozen bookcases to his compound, updating books every two months, and social benevolent people and students also donated books.

The cultural compound with increasingly rich collections and increasingly perfect facilities has gradually developed into a rural cultural and entertainment venue integrating a library, an activity room and a literary and art performance center.

“平时没啥娱乐,就喜欢闹个皮影戏。以前我们都是在自家院子里排练,吴学军知道了,就让我们到他这里来,地方宽敞,看的人多,更热闹。”刘世文说。

The banner “World Book Day 4.23” still hangs on the library wall of the Xuejun cultural compound. Every year on this day, Wu Xuejun to hold a reading and composition contest for students, but also out of his own pocket to buy watercolor pens, notebooks and other prizes for students. “We love these activities and we learn a lot,” says Dengaku.

Wu Xuejun, who is good at business, is always restless. In 2017, he opened a farm tool shop next door to the cultural compound, earning nearly 10,000 yuan a year, but in less than two years, he closed the shop. “I'm alone, and I can't take care of both sides of things. When I see the children waiting for the gate to open, I feel that it's more meaningful not to make money,” he said.

如今,吴学军只想一心守着这间没有收益的文化大院,日常生活开支主要来自屋后的田地和家里的几十只羊以及政府补贴。“天热了,娃娃们会给我买冰棍;我偶尔没开门,他们会翻窗进来看书。就是这些小事,让我想把文化大院一直办下去。”吴学军说。
