Gold Award Spotlight: Outdoor Amphitheatre for Van Wyck Library

Girl Scout Ambassador Katherine earned her Gold Award, by planning and fulfilling the construction of an outdoor amphitheater area at the Van Wyck Norfolk Library!

Katherine created a plan, gathered materials needed, and recruited a team of volunteers to help her build the wooden stage and benches comprising the amphitheater.

Katherine felt that the space was previously underutilized and she had a vision to recreate the area to allow the community more room for education and creative expression.

“Implementing the amphitheater opens the community to new opportunities for self expression and it gives this particular branch a new resource that can be used to provide inspiration and education,” Katherine said.

Katherine’s project will be maintained by the Van Wyck Library and will be used for future programming and events.
