2018 Friends of The Smithtown Library 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 25, 2018.

Women in Long Island's Past: A History of Eminent Ladies and Everyday Lives by Natalie A. Naylor
Women have been part of Long Island's past for thousands of years but are nearly invisible in the records and history books. From pioneering doctors to dazzling aviatrixes, author Natalie A. Naylor brings these larger-than-life but little-known heroines out of the lost pages of history in her book Women in Long Island's Past: A History of Eminent Ladies and Everyday Lives.
