Joey's Eagle Scout Project - Winter Park Library Book Bike
Organized by: Joey Cocchiarella
The Winter Park Public Library is a place where education, entertainment and enlightenment happen every day. As part of the outreach efforts to the neighborhoods they serve, the library has decided to go mobile and take their books and services out to the community with one of our areas first Book Bikes. As a Life Scout in Troop 205 of the the Central Florida Council of the Boy Scouts of America, I was looking for a meaningful project to complete my road to Eagle Scout. Knowing the commitment the Winter Park Library has made to the citizens of our area I wanted to lend my talents and hard work to this worthy cause. I plan to raise the money needed to purchase a stock cargo tricycle, retrofit the cargo tricycle into a book bike and hold a community book drive to build an inventory of books for library volunteers to pedal around town.
We have been very fortunate to have received grants and other donations totaling close to $1500, so we have lowered our fundraising goal. We are almost there! Thank you.
