Exhibits in the Greenfield Library

2023 Book Collecting Contest

The Greenfield Library supports the love of books and the pleasure found in building focused collections. The Book Collecting Contest provides an opportunity for members of the community to showcase their personal collections. This exhibit displays collections from the winning entries to the 2023 Book Collecting Contest.

Contestants were judged on the creativity, cohesion, and thoughtfulness in the development of their collections, as well as the significance of the collection to the owner. The library is exhibiting books from each collection in the Lillian Vanous Nutt Room, located on the first floor of the Library. The winning essays, available below, are also available to read in print at the exhibit.
