CONGRATULATIONS TO THE 2021 LMCC CONFERENCE SCHOLARSHIP WINNERS!
Wilmington Memorial Library- MA
Truly an instance of right-place, right-time, Ellen Boyle found herself starting her first library job at the Wilmington Memorial Library in August 2020. She received a B.S. in Television Production from Hofstra University and a M.Ed. in Higher Education from Merrimack College. Studying Higher Education allowed Ellen to grow passionate about environments that cultivate innovation, community, opportunity, and access, and it became apparent that a library would be the perfect place to bring her marketing and communications skills. Ellen loves helping patrons discover the wide expanse of resources and technology available at the library. She is looking forward to learning new and creative ways to target and cater directly to patrons’ needs.
