Rianna Baecher and Emily Gross were awarded the 2023 Nancy Curtin Scholarship Awards. The $500 scholarships are awarded each year to two graduating seniors who best exemplify the mission of libraries.
The scholarships are generously funded by the Friends of the Library and Library Foundation in honor of Nancy Curtin, former Library Director.
Curtin began working at the Port Washington Public Library in 1974 and served as library director from 1994 to 2018.
During her career, Curtin guided the Library through multiple construction projects, technological changes, and an overall modernization for the 21st century.
