Girl Scout Troop installs Little Free Children’s Library

Girl Scout Troop 41637 use cookie sale funds to install a free library.

A Little Free Children’s Library was installed at Snoqualmie Elementary (SES). The little free library was donated by Daisy Scout Troop 41637. The troop used cookie sales funds from earlier this year to purchase the free little library.

The library — a repurposed Seattle-Times newspaper dispenser — sits by the fence outside of the school. It will provide 24/7 access to book exchanges. Girl Scout Troop leader Griffin Canarro said those in need of children’s books can come out to the free little library at SES on 39801 SE Park St.

“We hope all our hard work is shared with great kids who need books,” said Girl Scout Eloise Walter, 7.

There are more than 90,000 free libraries in more than 90 countries with millions of books exchanged annually.
