GSA Silver Award Project Comprises Building a “Little Free Library”

Ashleigh Eggleston & Allison Norian, members of Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England Troop 362, Bellingham, recently completed their Silver Award Project at the Bellingham Public Library. The Silver Award Project is a community-service project planned, led and executed by Girl Scouts (comparable to an Eagle Scout project in Boy Scouts). Ashleigh and Allison contributed a combined 100 hours to complete their project.

After raising funds through bake sales and bottle and can drives, and then getting books donated by the community, Ashleigh and Allison were able to construct and complete the installation of their “Little Free Library” on library property.

Little Free Libraries are popping up all over the country. Started in 2009 as a way for communities to share books, Little Free Libraries are “take one—leave one” kiosks. The kiosk is fully stocked with books for children and adults.

The library encourages members of the community to utilize this new resource—stop by and take a look at the book offerings, and perhaps even take one and leave one in its place.
