On Saturday, May 10th school-age children are invited to a free Murfreesboro Book Day at Pavilion 1 of Old Fort Park, which is the Girl Scout Silver Award project of local resident Katie Goins. An 8th grader at Central Magnet school, Goins is planning the community event to raise awareness of how important reading is for kids. “Reading has been a huge part of my educational success since my first years of elementary school, and I hope to show younger kids in the community how important it is,” Goins said.
At the event, Goins plans for kids to be able to make a book of their own, meet some of their favorite book characters, and have a chance to hear stories that let them determine what they want to read next. “The event itself will be free, but I’m asking the people who come to bring a book to donate to local schools, that way everyone can have something new to read,” she added.
“I’m recruiting my fellow book-club members from Central and Girl-Scout sisters to help me with the event. It’s going to be great to give back to the community while earning my Silver Award after four years of scouting,” stated Goins. Goins’ troop #2433 is part of the Murfreesboro service unit which holds events throughout the year, as well as promoting girl-led events for the community. The Book Day will be held in two sessions from 12pm to 2pm and 2pm to 4pm, a total of four hours, on Saturday the 10th.
