FRIENDS OF LOS ALAMOS COUNTY LIBRARIES NEWS
The Friends of Los Alamos County Libraries (FLACL) are proud to announce scholarships of $ 2,500 each awarded to four high school students. The scholarship application process required them to submit a written essay on a book that somehow improved their lives or gave them a better understanding of the human condition. It was an enriching experience to read the quality of the work that was presented to the committee. Each of the applicants is to be commended for the effort and creativity with which they presented their essays.
This year’s recipients are:

FLACL was organized in 1978 and has provided additional support to our county library system for over 40 years. Part of this support comes from the contributions of a generous community. Most of the support comes from the Librairie des Amis, through donations made to, sales made and the kindness of the wonderful volunteers who give of their time to the boutique. It is this collective passion for knowledge and reading that allows Friends to give so much to this community.
