Nominate Your Library for a Makeover!

Scribner, the publisher of Anthony Doerr’s glorious New York Times bestseller Cloud Cuckoo Land, and his Pulitzer Prize winner All the Light We Cannot See, is pleased to work together with the Heart of America Foundation on its “Cloud Cuckoo Land Library Makeover Campaign,” a contest that will award a makeover to an under-resourced public or school library within the continental U.S. Nominations will be accepted nationwide through a dedicated Heart of America site beginning May 25, 2022 and ending June 10, 2022.

The campaign will seek nominations from libraries with librarians who are “book heroes,” and proposals should describe how a library makeover would impact the library’s community. Heart of America will select up to ten finalist libraries and the finalists will be posted on the site on July 25, 2022, for the public to vote on a winner. The library with the most votes will be notified this summer and will receive the makeover from Heart of America this fall. The makeover might include new furnishings, equipment, paint, carpet, a mural, and funds to purchase more books, depending on need. Up to five runner-up libraries will each receive a selection of more than one hundred adult and children’s books from Scribner and other Simon & Schuster imprints.
