Black Paw Books has been awarded the 2013 Don Dario Scholarship!
Biblio would like to thank to each and every applicant for the 2014 Don Dario scholarship for the Colorado Antiquarian Book Seminar.
Every year we receive many applications for the Don Dario scholarship from our worthy booksellers and it is quite difficult to choose only one of them to win! After much deliberation, the selection committee has chosen Charles Schmieg of Black Paw Books (newly renamed Novanglus Books) to be the recipient of the tuition scholarship for 2014. Congratulations, Charles!
Charles will receive the full cost of tuition for attendance, $250 toward travel and accommodations, and he will also have all monthly bookseller listing fees rebated for one year on our lowest commission billing option. There is also a $250 donation on its way to Room to Read, a non-profit literacy group, to assist them with their literacy education and gender equality campaigns in the developing world.
Everyone here at Biblio wishes Charles a safe journey, a wealth of knowledge to take back home to his bookshop in Rhode Island, and an overall wonderful time in Colorado!
To the many booksellers that were not choose this year, we hope that you will apply again next year! Biblio.com offers an annual scholarship to the Colorado Antiquarian Book Seminar – The Don Dario Honorary Scholarship is offered in keeping with Biblio’s stated commitment to Environment, Independence and Community.
