Book Collecting Contest

February 6 – March 29, 2018

The Greenfield Library supports the love of books and the pleasure found in building focused book collections. Each year the Library holds an annual Book Collecting Contest, which gives the St. John’s community the opportunity to showcase their personal collections. Contest submissions include an essay and an annotated bibliography and are judged by a committee on the creativity and thoughtfulness in developing the collection, the cohesion of the collection, and the significance of the collection to the owner. Below are the 2018 Book Collecting contest winners.
