Congratulations to Makayla Narajano!

Congratulations to Makayla Narajano (2nd from left), recipient of the 2019 Derby Public Library Scholarship Award! Makayla was presented the $500 prize by her former Principal and Library Board Member, Donna Doherty (far left), during the Board of Directors May meeting, with family in attendance.

After graduating Sacred Heart Academy, Makayla will attend Salve Regina University in Newport, RI where she will major in Education with a minor in Theology.

In her essay, Makayla shared that “at Derby Public Library, I have challenged my reading skills, made new friends and found a place to learn and grow.” We wish Makayla many adventures and hope she comes back to visit us. In addition to the monetary prize, her name will be added to the Scholarship Prize Plaque located in the Library’s Teen Zone.


There is always something happening at Derby Public Library for patrons of all ages.
