2019 Richard J. Connor  Award

The Friends of the Sandwich Public Library are once again sponsoring the Richard J. Connor Award in the amount of $2,500. The award will go to a graduating senior residing in Sandwich, regardless of where he or she goes to school, and who is continuing his or her education as a full-time student at a fully accredited insitution. Home schooled students are eligible to apply. This award honors the Library's former director, Richard J. Connor, and our intent is to provide financial assistance towards the purchase of the recipient's textbooks for his/her continuing education. Applications are available to download and print, or can be picked up at your school's guidance office and at the Sandwich Public Library. Students will need to submit a completed application along with a typed essay. Please see the application for further details.

The deadline for submissions is Thursday, April 4, 2019 before 8:30 pm.
