Cub Scout earns Wolf badge for landscaping project at Moultonborough Library

The Moultonborough Library Hobbit House, a child-sized outdoor playhouse in back of the children’s room, was recently enhanced by Scout Chambers, a Cub Scout and longtime library patron. Scout received his Wolf badge for landscaping the area surrounding the playhouse, leading a team to complete the community service project. Scout has been a library patron since he was young, and the library staff and trustees were pleased that he selected the library for his project. Scout and his team designed the garden space; solicited donations of plants including butterfly bushes donated by manager Mark Tuckerman of Aubuchon Hardware, bark mulch and flowers from John Gulla of JG Landscape, and flagstones; and also raised money to complete his project. Hostas, salvia, marigolds, veronica, and painted rocks have been added to beautify the house. Scout’s work and initiative was recognized at the Moultonborough Central School Citizenship and Scholarship Awards Assembly, where he was presented with a plaque by children’s librarian Sharon Gulla and library trustee Meg Greenbaum.
