Louise A. Stephens Memorial Scholarship
Louise Stephens, a graduate of the University of Arizona School of Information, worked for Glendale Public Library for 30 years, retiring in January 2007. During that time she served as a children’s librarian and library manager.

In 2001 she was named the association’s Librarian of the Year, and in 2007, she received the Rosenzweig Award for distinguished service.

The Arizona Library Association is charged with administering the scholarship fund, endowed with the University of Arizona Foundation.
