Each Spring the Friends of the Case Memorial Library offers The Lucy Scillia Scholarship to an Orange resident graduating from secondary school who is planning to pursue Library Science, English or Education in college.
The $1,000 Scholarship was established in the memory of long time Friends and Library Commission member Lucy Scillia, a retired school librarian who volunteered in many capacities in the Town of Orange. She read to children, volunteered in school libraries and was a life-long promoter of reading for pleasure and information.
Scholarship Applications are available at Amity Senior High School, the Case Memorial Library, and on-line at the Case Memorial website (go to Friends of the Library ).
Students who live in Orange and are attending secondary schools other than Amity also are eligible. The deadline for submitting applications is Tuesday, April 1.
