Reading opens up horizons for everyone.
At times, it creates worlds of wonder, unlimited by the imagination. Other times, it educates and strengthens knowledge. But most of all, reading connects. No matter where the reader comes from, for that moment in time, they connect with the writer and are able to see the world through another’s eyes. Olivia Woods was an avid reader and instilled a deep curiosity and passion for reading into her daughter, who went on to fall in love both with reading and writing. The Olivia Woods Memorial Scholarship will support someone who believes reading is important and has had a book transform their life in some way.
