The project, which consisted of repurposing an old library cart, is the Scouts’ Silver Award.

Little Free Library book exchanges are becoming more popular, providing a long-lasting, sustainable way to offer books to children, families and neighbors to ensure everyone has access to books year-round, especially those individuals who might have difficulty accessing public libraries.
