The winners of the 2019 Forest Avenue Library Love 4 Learning Scholarship are Katherine Berber-Solis and William Clemmons Jr. They were recognized at the April 17 Friends of the Forest Avenue Library meeting.
In describing how they used the Forest Avenue Library to be successful in school the winners stated: “I used the library to help me learn programming. Not to mention, I like to use the library as a meet up spot when tutoring or working on group projects.”
“I utilized the library to check out books, print papers, and to do any research for a project.”
The scholarship is made possible with a generous contribution from our anonymous donors via the Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines.
Applications for the 2020 FALL4Learning Scholarship will open in February 2020 for students who are DMPL card holders and use the Forest Avenue Library to be successful in school. Deadline for submitting 2020 applications is March 26.
