Family-Friendly Library Room Opens
The Andersen Nontraditional Scholarship for Women's Education and Retraining (ANSWER) is awarded to local mothers who are earning their first four-year degree in any field, and it is one of the few scholarship programs in the United States exclusively for mothers with school-age children. Susan Anderson, ANSWER founder, said she is committed to helping women who are raising school-age children to fulfill their dream of a college degree, and at the same time, create the desire, expectation and priority of a college degree for their children, too.
In response to this mission, ANSWER recently partnered with J. Murrey Atkins Library and the Office of Adult Students and Evening Services (OASES) to establish a family-friendly library room as a resource for nontraditional students and their children (up to age 12).
The ANSWER Scholarship Family-Friendly Library Room, located on the library’s second floor, features educational resources such as two computers and desks, a bilingual early literacy learning station, toys, books, LeapFrog educational and Disney movies and more to accommodate up to two families at a time.
