In memory of Bonnie CarrickIt is with sadness that we report the FOL has lost a valuable member.
Bonnie Carrick, a founding member of the Friends of the Library, passed away unexpectedly in her home on April 11.
One of Bonnie's passions was was our Scholarship Fund, which bears her name.
Every year Bonnie would lead her team in choosing the worthy recipient of the $1,500 scholarship. It is not an easy task, involving the reading of up to forty Scholarship notebooks prepared by Snohomish School District Seniors. Bonnie was always so careful to give each student a chance, and took her time choosing just the perfect candidate. We always looked forward to hearing about the winner as Bonnie described their attributes; she was always so enthusiastic about the student. Bonnie was a vital member of our group and she will will be missed If you would like to honor Bonnie's memory with a donation, in lieu of flowers, they can be addressed to:
