The Friends of the Town Hall Library Award Scholarship
The Friends of the Town Hall Library awarded a scholarship to Matt Amenda, a current library employee at Town Hall Library, who will be pursuing his Master’s degree in Library and Information Studies at University College Dublin, in Dublin, Ireland.
