In November, Martha Stevenson, President of the Delaware Valley Chapter of the Association of the College & Research Libraries (ACRL/DVC) presented Alexandra Wilder with a $1,000 stipend in support of her MLIS studies at Drexel University. Alexandra is currently Manager of Public Programs for the Rosenbach Museum & Library. In her application, Alexandra stated, “I want to continue and expand upon my work in libraries and give back some of what they have given me. Libraries are not only sources of information, but they are sources of connection and community in so many lives.” The ACRL/DVC Board congratulates Alexandra and wishes her much success.
Each year, ACRL/DVC invites any library school student living or working in the chapter’s service area (eastern Pennsylvania and Delaware) and currently enrolled in an ALA-accredited program to apply for the scholarship.
