The Friends of Los Alamos County Libraries (FLACL) are proud to announce scholarship awards for $2,500 each presented to four high school seniors.  The scholarship application process required that they present a written essay on a book that somehow enhanced their life or gave them a better understanding of the human condition.  It was a rewarding experience to read the quality of the work that was presented to the committee and which had a difficult decision to make. Every one of the applicants should be commended for the effort and creativity with which they presented their essays.

This year’s recipients are:

  • Abigail Beus will be attending Brigham Young University and plans to earn a degree in journalism.
  • Ray Guffee will be attending Washington State University majoring in Mechanical Engineering.
  • Kaya Krantz will be attending Fort Lewis College majoring in biology.
  • Brooklynn Scott has plans to pursue a degree in Media Arts at Brigham Young University.

FLACL was organized in 1978 and has provided additional support to our county’s library system for over forty years. Some of this support comes from contributions made by a generous community.  Most of the support comes from the Friends Bookstore, through the donations made to, the sales made from and the benevolence of the wonderful volunteers. It is through this collective passion for knowledge and reading that enable the Friends to give so much back to this community.
