Delano Girl Scout Jessica Meyer Goes for the Gold!
Jessica Meyer loves the library so much she decided to enhance the book collection at the Delano library by purchasing picture and teen books. In the process, Jessica earned her Girl Scout Gold Award.
This daunting task involved getting her project approved by the Girl Scout Council, learning the process for evaluating and purchasing books at Great River Regional Library, suggesting titles and raising money from a variety of sources including YAR (Youth and Resources) and Wright Hennepin Cooperative Electric Association. She did multiple bake sales at the library to earn funds for her project. Jessica is also painting a mural in the children’s area which will depict scenes from various story books. Jessica hopes to have the project completed by May.
