Posted in General News, Giving to the Library, and Students

The Patrons of the Library are pleased to announce the winners of their third Student Book Collection Contest. Eligibility requirements included a collection of at least 25 items based on a unifying principle or theme. The emphasis was on books, but up to 20% of the collection could consist of non-books items such as pamphlets, periodicals, maps, manuscripts, photographs, etc. Applicants were required to submit an essay describing their collection plus a bibliographic listing.

Natalie Nakamura was the $800 first prize winner. Her collection was entitled Defeating the Axis: The Legacy of World War II. Joseph Vaughan won the second prize of $400 for a collection entitled A Bibliophile’s Search for Dostoevsky. The $300 third prize was awarded to Nicholas Enke for his collection Augustine’s Absence.

In addition to the cash prizes, winners are awarded a one year membership in the Patrons of the Library.
