SinC Extends Library Grants through 2011

Jennifer Blakely, Director of the Lenox Township Library

We Love... The Lenox Township Library

The Lenox Township Library in New Haven, Mich., is the November 2010 winner of the Sisters in Crime (SinC) "We Love Libraries" funding.

The library will receive a check in the amount of $1,000 to be used for book purchases.

More Library Funding for 2011

The monthly SinC library lottery was expanded recently to continue to provide $1,000 grants for book purchases each month throughout calendar year 2011.

SinC members are encouraged to make sure the libraries in their areas know about -- and enter -- the "We Love Libraries" lottery program.

Libraries may participate by completing the online entry form at and uploading a photo of one or more staff members with three books in the library's collection written by Sisters in Crime members. A list of SinC author members can be found by clicking here.

A winner will be selected in a random drawing at the end of each month from the entries submitted online. Libraries must be located within the United States to be eligible to participate in the grant program.
