Central Ga. Girl Scout receives highest scouting honor

Project brings books to kids at Navicent

Mallory Adams spent her morning at Navicent Children's Hospital to reveal her project, "Imagination Station."

The project is a mobile library that will go around to hospital rooms. Adams hopes this project will allow children being treated at the hospital to extend their imagination beyond the walls of their hospital rooms. 

Adams says the hospital is like a second home to her, so there was no question of where she would put her efforts for her Gold Award project.

Imagination Station is something Adams hopes will not only provide a distraction for the kids, but also an educational advantage they lose while in treatment.

"I really hope it will give them entertainment and distraction, especially in a hospital, it can be really scary and so I hope that not only will it entertain them and distract them from like all the scary stuff, but it also promotes literacy because a lot of kids that come into the hospital, they stay here for a long time and then they end up missing school work and everything."

Over 500 books have been donated to the mobile library already.

If you are interested in donating, you can drop the books off at the front desk of Navicent Children's Hospital, and let them know they're for the Imagination Station.
