Friends 2017 Scholarship
The Friends of The Smithtown Library recognizes the role and contribution of libraries in the lives of young people. For this reason, the Friends wish to offer scholarships to graduating high school students from the Smithtown area so that they may continue to access informational material as they pursue a degree from an institution of higher learning. Winners will be selected by the Friends of The Smithtown Library and all decisions will be final. A $1000 scholarship will be awarded to the candidate whose application and essay best exemplify a desire to maintain a lifetime relationship with libraries. A $500 scholarship will be awarded to the first runner-up. Deadline for submissions is close of business on Friday, May 26, 2017.
On Thursday, July 6 the Friends of The Smithtown Library awarded its 9th annual scholarships to graduating Smithtown Library cardholders at the first concert in the Dennis Cannataro Family Summer Concert Series. The 2017 scholarship winner is Celine Desantis and the runner-up is Cassidy Shankar. Congratulations go out to both of them!
