Rochester College receives James C. Dance Award

June 8, 2010

The Metro Detroit Book and Author Society recently awarded Rochester College the James C. Dance Award for the Arts.  Awarded annually to a public or academic library in the metro Detroit area, the $2,000 grant will be used by the Ham Library to purchase books, music software, and a music database in support of the music and theatre programs.

“This award is presented at the annual spring luncheon to a public or academic library. The award is for establishing or improving an arts book collection, or for establishing and/or expanding a program which advances or celebrates any of the arts.  The award was established to honor the late James C. Dance, who was one of the founders of the Metro-Detroit Book & Author Society, and who served as its Master of Ceremonies for 19 luncheons. Mr. Dance was the public relations coordinator of the Detroit Public Library.”
