Several girls from Troop 3064 in Chapel Hill earned the Silver Award, the second highest achievement in Girl Scouting.
For their project, Sasha Barry, Talia Felgenhauer, Daisy Mozgala, Christine Njogu, Coco Stevens, Claudia Wade, Hadley Wade, Madeline Wilson, Nichole Zhang, and Talia Zuco set up Little Free Libraries, containers housing free books for the use of a community, around their neighborhood.
