Emerging Local Authors

GVPL celebrates local authors! The library has established the Emerging Local Authors Collection to highlight self-published, independent, or small press print 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 that year’s authors and titles.

Between October 1, 2017 and January 12, 2018, we will be accepting applications for the 2018/19 Collection. The eligibility criteria and online application form will be posted at that time.
