The Free Little Library is located outside of the main doors of Oakdale Elementary School, close to the bench. The girls started the library with some of their favorite books.

The six girls in Girl Scout Troop 52932 in Oakdale recently donated a Free Little Library to Oakdale Elementary School located at 821 Glenbrook Ave. N. The donation was part of the Take Action portion of the “It’s Your World - Change it!” Leadership Journey. As part of this journey, Troop 52932 planned, organized and executed the library as a Take Action Project with the goal of moving the community one step closer to the troop vision of a perfect, girl-focused world through art. The library was seeded with books that were focused on girl empowerment. 

The girls in Troop 52932 attend a variety of high schools in the area such as Woodbury, Tartan, Stillwater, Hill Murray and Cretin Durham. The troop has been in existence since they were Daisies in kindergarten. Now, most are going into sophomore year with one going into junior year. Most girls are very active in athletics and clubs outside of Girl Scouts. Additionally, community service is a big part of their troop life, and they do volunteer work every year. They donate Girl Scout Cookies every year to the military as well as a local non-profit. 

They have all earned their Bronze and Silver Awards and completing the Free Little Library is the first step towards earning their Gold Award, the highest award in Girl Scouts.
