Karen Zeller. Wheaton, IL. We built our library as our Bronze Award for our Girl Scout Junior Troop. Our girls did everything from fundraising to PR and building to book drives. The purpose of the library was to bring animal themed books to the 0-7 age group while working on early childhood reading enrichment. The zoo even built us an area specific to the library with sitting areas and places to stay and read.
Four members of Girl Scout Troop 1967 in Chatham completed their silver award by creating a banner with an environmental theme, ‘The Earth Is In Our Hands.’ The banner will hang in the hallway at Washington Avenue School, their alma mater.
