Girls Scouts Spruce Up the Learning Center!

GSA Project 0

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.
