Scholarship Winner

The Anna Mae Auchmoedy / Lottie Burns Scholarship 2014

Every Spring the Friends of the Rosendale Library give a $750 scholarship to a graduating high school senior. The money is to be used for college expenses.  Students from Rondout Valley, Kingston, Coleman and New Paltz high schools who live in the Rosendale Library district may apply.

This year’s winner is Samantha Fuller from Rondout Valley high school.
She will be attending SUNY Oneonta in the Fall.  As Samantha says, “A library influences community life in many ways.  It provides the people in our community with a quiet center, and offers a place for children to come and learn the amazing wonders of reading.  It also works as a community center, holding workshops and lectures open to the public, allowing us to learn new things every day.”
We wish Samantha all the best as she begins her journey in college.

Anna Mae Auchmoedy was the woman we have to thank for the original idea of the Rosendale Library.  Anna Mae and the Comus Club of Rosendale started our library in 1940.  The Women’s Club of Rosendale was key in promoting and supporting our young library.  Lottie Burns worked very closely with Anna Mae for many years.
