Check it Out!

 

WWLib-11

So, I have a great new reason to visit my local library, in fact, three great reasons!  Today, I received an email from Liz Waun, the Adult Literacy Program Coordinator at our library, informing me that all three of my self-published books will be available for check out by the patrons.  The Local Author Collection is a brand new service being provided by the library and I am honored to be one of the first authors whose books were accepted.

When the library had the book signing/author event back on October 17th of this year, we were handed a form to submit with one of our books for the expressed purpose of being included in this collection. I was allowed to submit all three of my books, each with their own form. We were told it could be 1-2 months for the decision to be made but it did not take that long.

It is so cool that each new book I write can be submitted at any time. And they do not have plans to rotate books out of circulation, once they are in that collection, they are there.  I also asked if anyone throughout our state (I live in Michigan) could go to their library and request my books and was told YES!  This means that my family and friends can check my books out of the Westland Public Library without having to drive here because the books will come to them.

Once the section is complete, I will be able to go in and take photographs of something I never dreamed I would see, books I’ve written, available for check out at the library!  Check it out

My heart is so happy and I am as grateful as I can be to Liz Waun and Andy Schuck, Head of Youth Services of the William P. Faust Public Library of Westland, Michigan for this opportunity.

      Thank you my friend! I am seeing this as a giant leap for indie authors everywhere! Someone can take this post, and approach their local library and perhaps see this as a reality for themselves.
