We look ahead towards continuing to increase awareness of the contest as we did this year by implementing the online entry submittals and acceptance as long as they meet the date and time deadline. We encourage student book enthusiasts to look into the Libraries web page for the announcement of the beginning of the next contest. We encourage all student collectors, those who have participated in the past to continue to participate with a new or different collection, and those who have not yet done so, to consider sending their entry to experience the richness of the participants and the knowledge the contest judges bring to this event.
