Caitlin Grossman of the Yuma High School Library in Yuma, Ariz., and Valerie Acklin of the Bellmore Memorial Library in Bellmore, N.Y., winners of the fourth annual Will Eisner Graphic Novel Grants for Libraries, were honored over the weekend at the American Library Association Annual Conference/ALA Awards, held at San Francisco’s Moscone Center.

ALA’s Gaming Round Table, and the Graphic Novels & Comics Member Initiative Group, administer the grants, which were established in honor of acclaimed cartoonist Will Eisner (1917–2005). The grants—a combination of cash vouchers and award-winning book collections—are awarded annually to libraries working to promote awareness and literary appreciation of graphic novels and comic books.
