Josiah Carpenter Library Lucky Recipient Of Girl Scout Gold Award

Submitted By Beverly Pietlicki, Library Director


Six months ago, the Josiah Carpenter library received a surprise visit from a local teenager asking if the library would be interested in receiving a gift of the product of her Girl Scout Gold Award project. When asked what her project was about she humbly explained her ideas. She wanted to put together different “bags of caring” for kids in the community to learn the love of reading, like she remembered doing when she was younger. She said she wanted to find books around a similar topic and put them together in a bag with other items to make the reading experience more interactive. How could the library say “no?”


Last week Delaney John-Zensky called to say that she was ready to deliver her bags. This gave us the opportunity to find out more about Delaney’s experience. We wanted to know more about her and her history with the Girl Scouts.


Delaney has been with the Girl Scouts since she was five years old. She started out like most girls as a Daisy, went on to become a Brownie, and then, because of all the opportunities that were offered, she graduated into Girl Scouts. Since her time as a girl scout she has visited Washington, D.C., a lighthouse on Cape Cod, and has worked on contributing a play area at the Tilton Hill baseball field for her Silver Award. Delaney loves to do projects and she loves to read. When asked who her favorite author or book series was she answered in the plural, “Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, Hunger Games, John Green...”


The first bags Delaney has donated to the library include a Dr. Seuss themed bag that includes five traditionally fun books with a “make your own Dr. Seuss animal” activity. Three other activity-themed bags are centered on dinosaurs, birds, and visiting the doctor for kids. These bags are now cataloged and available for parents to check out from the library so they can begin interacting with their kids on these themes at home.  Parents can also come into the library and use the kits right in the library with the help of a library staff person.


The library would like to thank Delaney John-Zensky for this thoughtful and empowering gift to the library and Pittsfield community, congratulate her on the completion of her award, and wish her the very best in her future achievements with the Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountain Council.
