Enter the Undergraduate Book Collector's Contest

Do you collect books on a particular topic, by a favorite author, or of a particular genre? Enter the Undergraduate Book Collector's Contest, sponsored by the Friends of the Gertrude Kistler Memorial Library. The Book Collector's Contest is open to all current Rosemont undergraduates. The rules are simple:
  • Submit a 250 word essay on your favorite book collection (concentrate on the focus of the collection). Textbooks may not be entered. Books mentioned in the essay must be owned by the participant. Address your entry to Mrs. Janine Surrichio, President of the Friends of the Library. Deliver to the Information Desk in the Library by November 27, 2013.
  • Judging will take place on December 3. You will be contacted if your essay is selected and asked to come to the Library to share your collection with the judges. You will be contacted in advance of the judging to set up a convenient time for your presentation. Each participant will be given 15 minutes.
  • First Prize: $200
  • Second Prize: $100
