Scholarship targets part-time MLIS students

A new scholarship named for Joan Brest Friedberg, co-founder of Carnegie Library's Beginning with Books project, focuses on the needs of part-time students in the Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) program.

Beginning with Books is an early literacy intervention project designed to foster a love of reading in children and families.

Endowed by alumna Naomi L. Siegel, the scholarship will be awarded to MLIS students who intend to pursue careers in public librarianship. The first recipient of the scholarship is Sharon Washington, an employee of Beginning with Books, who will graduate from the School of Information Sciences in the spring.
