Enter your library in the We Love Libraries lottery. Grants of $1,000 will be awarded monthly from January through December 2016. At the end of each month, a winner will be drawn from entries received at our website at www.sistersincrime.org. Only U.S. libraries may enter the drawing. Below you will find photos of our latest winners.
To enter, simply complete the entry form and upload a photo of one or more of your staff with three books in your collection by Sisters in Crime members. You can find a list of our members who are authors by navigating to our top menu drop-down menu and look under Resources --> Authors Search.
After the random drawing on the last business day of the month, the winning library will be contacted and announced. All branches within a larger system may enter; however, once a library in the system has won, no other libraries within that system can win the grant. Those not successful in one month will automatically be entered for subsequent drawings. Grants must be used to purchase books and may not be used for general operating expenses. Book purchases are NOT restricted to the mystery genre nor to those by Sisters in Crime members. There is no cost or obligation other than allowing us to post winners' photos on our website.
All libraries are welcome to enter. If you have Sisters in Crime author mysteries in your collection we would love for you to enter this money giveaway.
We at Sisters in Crime LOVE our libraries and want to see them thrive. Click here for the entry form.
If you have any questions please contact Beth Wasson.
