Girl Scout Troop 811 of service unit 636 has built and installed two Little Free Libraries in Greenville County – Century Park Kids Planet and St. Giles Presbyterian Church on Hudson Road.

The libraries were part of the Junior’s Bronze award project in which they contribute to an ongoing program. The little free libraries are a “give a book, take a book” program that is within easy access to the public to help encourage literacy in both children and adults.

The success of the program mostly depends on the community to take a book while also donating gently used books to keep the circulation alive.

Girl scout juniors Sarah Manske (11), Abby Jones (12), Caroline Greene (11), Isabella Adams (12) and Hannah Adams (11), made the library with the help of adult volunteers.

The scouts researched and planned their ideas. Then, with the help of wood worker and father of Caroline, Bob Greene helped the girls construct the wooden libraries. The girls each painted a side of the library.
