The Friends of The Smithtown Library recognizes the role and contribution of libraries in the lives of young people. For this reason, the Friends wish to offer scholarships to graduating high school students from the Smithtown area so that they may continue to access informational material as they pursue a degree from an institution of higher learning. Winners will be selected by the Friends of The Smithtown Library and all decisions will be final. A $500 scholarship will be awarded to the candidate whose application and essay best exemplify a desire to maintain a lifetime relationship with libraries. A $250 scholarship will be awarded to the first runner-up. The scholarships will be awarded at the first night of the Summer Concert Series.

Although all our meetings are open to the public, the Executive Board Meetings are for the purpose of conducting the business of the governing board and for preparing for the upcoming General Membership Meetings. Our General Membership Meetings are held to conduct business that relates to the membership at-large and to provide an opportunity for people who are interested in the library to establish a closer relationship. Come and visit with us, or join us and become a member.
