Project Description


For questions about the Emerging Local Authors Collection, email [email protected].

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.
