More "Gold" at the Delano Library

More "Gold" at the Delano Library

Jessica Meyer is on the second phase of earning her Gold Award for Girl Scouts. She is painting a mural in the children's area at the Delano Library. The mural, which will surround the entire children's room, features characters from favorite books. She surveyed children, friends and adults to generate her ideas. The mural features five landscapes - hills, forest, sea, city and night. She is weaving the characters into the various scenes and it is becoming Delano's own "Look and Find" storybook mural. Patrons are exuberant as they spot new figures in the painting each week. Jessica is painting the mural freehand. In addition to creating the mural, Jessica raised $1000 to purchase children's and teen books for the Delano Library.
