Emerging Authors Collection

The Emerging Authors Collection offers local authors the opportunity to have their books on shelves and in circulation, receive wider exposure and reach an audience they might otherwise not influence.Have you written a book that takes place in the area or do you live in metro Chicago? If you meet either of these criteria, donate your print book to the Glen Ellyn Public Library and we will be pleased to consider it for our Emerging Authors Collection.

Selected books will be added to our catalog, where they can be checked out by local community members or accessed by any public library. Books will also be featured in a special Emerging Authors display on our second floor.

Our librarians will include books based on condition and perceived demand or interest by the Glen Ellyn community. For further details, see our Emerging Authors Collection Policy.

You can also submit books electronically via Self-E, the library’s online submission platform. Ebooks submitted through Self-E will be available for download through Biblioboard.
