From the Friends of the Franklin Library

From the friends…We have a couple items to note this month starting with an exciting announcement for a local teen. We'd like to congratulate recent Franklin High School graduate Gwenne Balcius, the 2022 Friends of the Franklin Library Scholarship recipient. This year participants were asked to reflect on the heroes in their life, we received many stellar submissions and want to thank all who participated. Gwenne's delightful essay identified the hero figures she's had throughout her life as she moved across the country and entered new schools, local librarians. Thank you, Gwenne, for sharing your story and the important role libraries and local librarians have had on you. Gwenne will be heading off to Clark University in the fall. Keep an eye out for an update and feature on Gwenne in the coming months

The annual $1,000 scholarship is awarded to a college-bound senior in memory of Wilma Winters, a dedicated Franklin Public Library volunteer. Thank you again to all applicants.

Next, how about a meet up? It's summer and there are plenty of wonderful happenings around town including the Franklin Farmers' Market. So, we thought why not join in on the fun? We invite you to stop by our Friends of the Franklin Library table on Friday, August 5 to learn more about the Friends, meet some of our members and enter our "Bucket of Summer Fun" giveaway! We can't wait to see you there.

Friends of the Franklin Library is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting and promoting the Franklin Public Library's collections and programs. Want to learn more about becoming a Friend? Drop us a line at for more information on the Friends.
