Local Author Collection
The library is developing a collection of kids, teen, and adult materials written by local authors.
For a book to be considered for this new collection, the author must
- be from the metro Chicago area (or the book’s setting or storyline must be in the metro Chicago area)
- agrees to donate a physical copy of his/her book to the library
- agrees that DGPL makes the final determination
Books accepted into the collection
- may be self-published
- become the property of DGPL
- will be added as time permits
- may be withdrawn at any time
Submit your book (drop off or mail) to:
- Local Author Coordinator
- Downers Grove Public Library
- 1050 Curtiss Street
- Downers Grove IL 60515
DGPL will contact the authors of all submissions with a decision. Books not accepted into the collection may be picked up by the author or considered for the library’s book sale.
