Leadership Development funding is aimed at enhancing the library's flexibility and capacity for change. Along with a need to develop new staff to succeed those who are retiring, current staff also need the skills and training necessary to keep pace with the rapidly changing face of the library and how it delivers its services.
In response to this need, Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation established an ongoing scholarship in 2009. The application process is open to all Sno-Isle Libraries staff wishing to further their education and obtain a Master's degree in library and information science (MLIS). Applicants must meet set criteria and go through an interview process. Since its inception, six scholarships have been awarded to Sno-Isle staff.
Congratulations to Emily Felt, the 2013 recipient of the Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation $1,000 MLIS scholarship.
Emily is currently employed as a Page II at Coupeville Library. She is attending the University of Washington and expects to graduate from the MLIS program in the spring of 2014.
Previous scholarship recipients are Danielle Brend 2011 and 2012, Mary Jennings 2010, and Lisa Abdallah and Crystal King 2009.
Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation is proud to assist these dedicated professionals in fulfilling their dream of becoming a librarian.
Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation is a public, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization registered with
