The Friends of the Smithtown Library are proud to announce their fifth annual scholarship awards to two Smithtown teens. The Friends are a volunteer organization dedicated to supporting The Smithtown Library.
Brittany Jaworski received her first place $400 check just prior to the start of the opening show of the Friends Family Summer Concert Series. The concert series is held each Thursday evening on the front lawn of the Smithtown Main Building during July and August. Matthew Grasso, also of Smithtown, was awarded a $200 check as the first runner-up in the contest.
Ms. Jaworski has credited her early love of the Library with giving her the tools to succeed academically. President Bubaris said, “Working with William Salas, the Young Adult Librarian at the Smithtown Main Building, has been great, especially when our work results in helping teens continue to access books and materials when they leave Smithtown to pursue a college degree.” Mrs. Bubaris concluded, “I would also like to thank Scholarship Chairperson Agatha Monteleone and her Committee for the many hours they put in to selecting the two top recipients.”Pictured (l-r) are Agatha Monteleone, Friends Scholarship Chairperson, Brittany Jaworski of Smithtown, this year’s scholarship winner and Joan Bubaris, President of the Friends organization.
Although all our meetings are open to the public, the Executive Board Meetings are for the purpose of conducting the business of the governing board and for preparing for the upcoming General Membership Meetings. Our General Membership Meetings are held to conduct business that relates to the membership at-large and to provide an opportunity for people who are interested in the library to establish a closer relationship. Come and visit with us, or join us and become a member.
