The Mackenzie-Scott Branch got a bit of a makeover this month as a group of Girl Scouts renovated the Learning Center Library. The girls of Troop 1751 started the project in December and unveiled it during National Boys & Girls Club Week in April! This project will provide our members with an inviting environment to promote reading.
The project wasn’t just a paint job — but it was one amazing paint job! The Girl Scouts furnished the library with great new furniture and, more importantly, new books! They fixed the walls, purchased a rug, brought in a brand new sofa, assembled special “reading benches” and built new bookcases. The project was topped off with a new privacy curtain so reading isn’t interrupted by other activities in the learning center.
The project was funded with a grant from the Pasadena Education Foundation and proceeds from Girl Scout Cookie sales! Thank you to everyone involved.
