Region – Three Girl Scouts from Berlin Troop 75302 – Gabby, Hailey, and Kate, dedicated their time and hard work this fall to create a more comfortable and inviting teen section at the Berlin Public Library as their Silver Award Project. The Silver award is the highest award a cadette can earn and it’s the second highest award in Girl Scouts.

Each of the girls spent over 50 hours fundraising, researching, and obtaining and creating items for the library. They purchased a new table, beanbags, curtains, and wall decals to make the library nicer for teenagers to sit and read a book. They also purchased storage containers for the children’s area.

When the library re-opens and it is safe, the girls hope to have a dedication ceremony with the community to celebrate their accomplishments and show people the new area. 

The girls thanked their troop leader Julie-Anne, their parents, and Berlin Public Library’s Sara Foster for their unwavering support. They also thanked the Friends of the Library, Balance Rock Farm, and everyone else in the community who donated to their project.
