Emerging Local Authors

GVPL celebrates local authors! The library has established the Emerging Local Authors Collection to highlight self-published, independent, or small press books by local authors, for readers of all ages.

Each spring, GVPL launches a new collection of books by emerging local authors. The print books are showcased at the Central Branch in the rotunda for one year; the ebooks are showcased online from our BiblioBoard platform. The books are also available to browse and borrow from our catalogue. Information about the authors is featured below — click the year to view the authors and their titles.
