TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - On Sunday, May 15, after conducting a book drive and collecting books from friends and classmates, Girl Scout Troop 108 unveiled its new mobile library.
"We wanted to promote reading as well as a feeling of community," said Ryan G, 10, one of the nine girl scouts from the troop, in a recent release.
The box will sit at 2626 N. 15th Ave. and according to the Girl Scouts they hope this will give community members access to free books to read.
It was a love of reading, according to Troop 108 members, that motivated them to build the library. Book drives and money from cookie sales to buy supplies made the library a reality. The new library is an old cabinet purchased from Habitat for Humanity, so the troop was helping out in more ways than one.
The mobile library will remain at Jacinto Park where community members can come and get a book to read, to help pass the summer along.
