GILFORD — On Saturday, June 7 the Gilford Public Library was presented with 30 new books by Girl Scout Brownie Troop #12481.
Led by Scout Leaders Dina Albert and Michelle Rizzatano, the troop decided to use the money they earned selling 1,200 boxes of cookies this year to donate books to the Library's Children's Room collection. The troop decided to donate to the Library after lot of discussion about where the money should go, and where the most number of people could enjoy and benefit from a donation.
"I like to read books!" said Alison Liakas. The girls picked series they liked and researched new books online. Rylee Rizzatano said she picked books that she thought her younger sister might like some day. Lydia Stephan and Elizabeth Albert said that their favorite part of being a Girl Scout was that "we get to have fun" and "you get to help people".
After a trip to the Library, the Brownies were going Geo Caching and then having a Pizza Party. All of the girls have re-signed and will be Brownies together next year. All of the donated books have now been added to the Library collection and are on display in the Children's room.
