The Friends' Annual Jan Trenholm Memorial Scholarship

The Scholarship:  The Friends of the Library honor a graduating high school senior's commitment as a volunteer to the West Windsor Library and/or the Friends of the West Windsor Library with a Jan Trenholm Memorial Scholarship of up to $1,000. The scholarship program is supported by donations received in the memory of Jan Trenholm, a Friend and former co-chair of many Friend's annual Book Sales, and from Friends funds. We also thank Jan Trenholm's husband, William Warren and his family for their thoughtful financial support. 

A Jan Trenholm Scholarship recipient must be a graduating high school senior who is continuing on in his/her education, be a Mercer County Library System member, volunteer at least 25 hours in one school year, submit a scholarship form, which includes an essay and a letter of recommendation from a staff or Friends' member.

General Support

The Friends of the West Windsor Library raise money that enables our library to move from good to great - providing resources for additional programming, much needed equipment, support for children's summer reading, museum passes, and special events throughout the year. The work of the Friends highlights the fact that our library is the cornerstone of the community providing opportunities for all to engage in the joy of life-long learning and connecting with the thoughts and ideas of others from ages past up to the present.
