Local teen and active Girl Scout, Ivy Yates, has been working hard in 2020 and 2021 to complete her Girl Scout Gold Award.

As part of her project, Ivy recently completed an amazing milk jug igloo that is available for admiring at the Mendon Public Library. Ivy collected, cleaned, stored, and assembled a huge number of milk jugs to create this igloo. Once she had enough, she began assembling the igloo at the library with some help from her family. When it was all done, Ivy hosted a virtual story time from the igloo that featured some artic books!

Over the summer of 2020, Ivy created a craft cart from scratch for use at the Library. Ivy hopes that her craft cart will be a great place for kids of all ages to find creating materials when they’re visiting the library.

In addition, Ivy hosted a “Slime Time” virtual program for children as part of the library’s Summer Reading Program. Ten kids joined Ivy on Facebook Live to make some fantastic, fantasy slime.
She has plans to hold additional virtual programs this spring. Stay tuned by following https://mendonlibrary.org/.

The Girl Scout website says, “Gold Award Girl Scouts are the dreamers and the doers who take ‘make the world a better place’ to the next level. The Girl Scout Gold Award is the mark of the truly remarkable—proof that not only can she make a difference, but that she already has.” For more information, please visit: https://www.girlscouts.org
