SMITHVILLE — The juniors of Girl Scout Troop 1686 wrapped up their Bronze Award toward the end of August as the girls placed books in their new little free library at Eagle Heights Elementary, 18801 Eagle Parkway. The award is the highest a junior can earn and is awarded for a project that makes the community a better place.

The 12 girls, who attend both Eagle Heights and Horizon elementary schools in the Smithville School District, spent hours on their project. They completed the project before they entered sixth grade. Ten of them celebrated the opening with a ribbon cutting.
