Project Description


Applications are now open for the 2019/2020 collection.

Apply today.

NEW: Local authors can also submit their ebooks to SELF-e for inclusion in libraries across Canada, through BiblioBoard.

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 for the 2019/2020 collection are being accepted now through to January 11, 2019.

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.
