In memory of Bonnie Carrick

Bonnie Carrick, a founding member of the Friends of the Library, died in 2015. One of Bonnie's passions 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 40 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 her memory with a donation, it can be sent to:

At the moment that we persuade a child, any child, to cross that threshold,
that magic threshold into a library, we change their lives forever, for the better.
