            The Board of Trustees of the Middletown Township Public Library is pleased to announce the availability of the Conover-Wihtol Scholarship for no less than $500 for graduate study in Library Science.

            The Scholarship Fund was established in memory of Edith B. Conover and Karl F. Wihtol, both long-time residents of Middletown Township and dedicated friends to the Library.

            First consideration for eligibility will be given to residents of Middletown Township, but in the absence of qualified applicants from the Township, New Jersey residents will be considered.

            Applicants must possess a bachelor’s degree or be in the final semester of undergraduate studies.  The applicant will also be expected to provide evidence of acceptance for graduate work at an ALA accredited school of Library Science.

            Application forms are available from the Middletown Township Public Library, 55 New Monmouth Road, Middletown, New Jersey 07748.  Completed application forms must be postmarked no later than August 16, 2013.

ipad stations
The Middletown Township Public Library (MTPL) has created an iPad-based technology station in its early childhood area. This space is targeted toward families with toddlers and preschoolers; the featured apps are designed to build early literacy and math skills. This article covers the logistics and benefits of creating an early childhood tech station using tablet computers. The public library plays an important role in supporting families and caregivers in preparing young children for kindergarten. In the 21st century, this preparation includes the concept of transliteracy. This relatively new educational concept is defined as the ability to read, write, and interact across a wide range of media.
