The Romance Writers of America Library Grant is designed to provide a public library the opportunity to build or expand its romance fiction collection and/or host romance fiction programming.
We are pleased to announce that this year’s $4,500 grant is awarded to the Hazel W. Guilford Memorial Library in Aurora, N.C. The library will use the funds to rebuild their romance collection, which was greatly impacted by flooding from Hurricane Irene and is one of the most circulated genres at the library.
Past grant recipients:
- 2012: Tuscaloosa (Ala.) Public Library
- 2011: Costa Mesa (Calif.)/Donald Dugan Library
- 2010: Huntsville-Madison County (Ala.) Public Library
