Bookbinding/Librarian merit badge from Ireland
Ireland is another country that has a scout bookbinding badge – a Bookbinding/Librarian merit badge, to be exact. In Ireland, scouts are 12 – 15 years of age.
The purpose of the merit badge is to allow a scout to focus on an interest and decide if he’d like to pursue it as a career option. The badges are worn on the right sleeve.
Just like with New Zealand, I ran into a dead end while trying to track down the requirements for earning the bookbinding/librarian badge. I have contacted the Ireland National Office for more information so I’ll give you an update if I hear back from them!
Update: I heard back and you can get the details here.
