Boy Scout Reading Merit Badge Introduction

Boy Scouts of America can get a jump start on their reading merit badge requirements by learning to use the online catalog and then locating books from a variety of genres.

Come with a list of six books of four different types (such as poetry, drama/plays, fiction, nonfiction, biographies, etc.). The Boy Scout can ask a librarian about award-winning books that are recommended for their age level and include at least one of those titles. Sessions last one hour and each session must be for six or more registered Boy Scouts of America members. The library has a registered merit badge counselor who can sign off on the first part of each member’s reading merit badge.
