Take A Book. Return A Book.
By Alice Wanamaker
Girl Scouts from Troop 8219 of Bath dedicated their Bronze Award Project, a Little Free Library last Friday at Keystone Park. The dedication was for the self-contained book house that the girls built and installed at the park. The library will house books for children and young adults to take and read as they please.
Nicole Hanna, Katlin Beenders Jada Johnson and Katelyn Unangst were part of the award ceremony, as the four girls worked together on the project.
The four girls earned the highest award a Junior Girl Scout can earn for the community service project, the Girl Scout Bronze Award. The award honors girls who demonstrate a commitment to helping others, improving the community and the world and becoming the best she can be. Throughout the process the girls built confidence, met new people and worked as a team. The awards were presented to them by Troop Leader Terri Schmoyer and Co-Leader Larysa Nemeth.
Following the dedication, the first book “Gotcha Louie” was borrowed by six year-old Anne Beenders of Bath.
