A GIFT FOR THE LIBRARY – An avowed and self-described “science evangelist” whose life goal for children and young adults is to “Make. Science. Fun.” has donated $3,000 to the Marion Branch of the Jersey City Free Public Library at 1017 West Side Ave. World-renowned materials research scientist and Jersey City-native Ainissa G. Ramirez, Ph.D., recently received the Andrew Gemant Award from the American Institute of Physics (AIP). She received $5,000 and $3,000 to give to her designated institution of choice to advance public communication of physics. Dr. Ramirez named the Marion Branch Library, where she spent many hours reading and learning as a child, as grant recipient.
