A small New Hampshire community on the Maine border, Effingham, is the big winner of $10,000 in the 2004 FOLUSA/HarperCollins Publishers Award, donated annually in honor of author Barbara Kingsolver. During the past two years, volunteers have been raising funds to increase the library's hours, staff, circulation and community profile. Prior to that time, the library was only open 4 hours a week and had no full-time librarian; now it is open 22 hours a week and has a two person staff.
Here's more about this industrious (and fortunate) group of friends: FOLUSA.
