For the Love of BooksFor 40 years, the Friends of the Libraries of Boston University has sponsored an annual book collecting contest. The contest is open to all full-time students regularly enrolled at Boston University and is devised “to stimulate the student body to pursue the gratifying and exhilarating experience of creating a collection of books, with all the ancillary benefits such an interest involves.” Formerly named in honor of its principal donor, the HGARC Book Collecting Contest awards six cash prizes ranging from $200 to $1,500. For additional information, please review the Contest Rules and First Place Winners since 1967. The deadline for applications is 5:00 pm on Monday, March 20, 2017.
