Tricina Beebe of the Camden County Library System accepts a $10,000 scholarship awarded by the New Jersey Library Association to pursue her Masters of Library Science degree.

Funded by the Karma Foundation through the New Jersey Library Association

VOORHEES, NJ – June 5, 2013 – An employee of the Camden County Library System has won a $10,000 scholarship to pursue her Masters of Library Science degree.

The New Jersey Library Association awarded the scholarship to Tricina Beebe yesterday at its annual conference in Atlantic City. The scholarship is funded by the Karma Foundation and administered through the NJLA, which interviewed applicants for the award through a competitive process held at Rutgers University New Brunswick in April.

 “I applied for the scholarship so that I can further my career and merge both my human services and social work background with a Masters in Library Science. I am hoping to continue my studies to work with urban populations, underserved communities and those with special needs through literacy training and community programming.

My goal is to fuse technology with traditional library services and to propel the future of libraries through community outreach, services, materials and programming,” explained Beebe.

A Technical Services Library Associate at the Voorhees branch library and a resident of Berlin Borough, NJ, Beebe will have the opportunity to volunteer on various NJLA projects while attending library school at Clarion University of Pennsylvania.

The Karma Foundation, based in New Jersey, is dedicated to supporting arts and culture, education and literacy, health and human services and the development and enrichment of Jewish life.
