Project Description


The launch of the 2020 collection has been delayed until further notice due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the closure of the library’s physical branches. We will provide more information once the library re-opens.

NEW: Local authors can also submit their ebooks to the Indie Author Project for inclusion in libraries across Canada, through the BiblioBoard platform.

GVPL celebrates Greater Victoria’s rich writing culture with our Emerging Local Authors Collection, featuring self-published, independent and small press books by local authors.

Each spring, GVPL launches a new series of books submitted by emerging authors in our community. Applications are accepted in the fall for the next year’s collection.

The print books in the Emerging Local Authors Collection are on display at the Central Branch in the rotunda for one year; you can browse the titles and place them on hold to pick up at the branch of your choice.

The ebooks are showcased online through BiblioBoard, with unlimited borrowing.
