A LIBRARIAN with a passion for chick lit has scooped a national award for her work in promoting romantic fiction.

Sharon Hunt, from Kingswinford Library, has been named Librarian of the Year at the Romantic Novelists' Association Industry Awards 2018.

The award recognises the important work that librarians do in supporting the romantic fiction genre, and the RNA in particular.

Sharon was selected as winner for her commitment to supporting and promoting romantic fiction through library events, reviews, and publicity.

She was presented with her award at the RNA's Winter Party, held in the Library at the Institute of Mechanical Engineers in London on November 14.

Sharon said she reads and reviews all kinds of books but she has a particular passion for romantic fiction.
