Emerging Authors Collection

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 not otherwise influence.

Emerging Authors Collection Guidelines

  • A book’s author or publisher may donate a book written by a resident of the greater Chicago metropolitan area or which takes place in metro Chicago. The book becomes the property of the Glen Ellyn Public Library.
  • The librarian responsible for the genre or subject area of the donated book will decide whether to include the book in the collection based on its condition and perceived interest by the Glen Ellyn community.
  • If the donated book is not included in the collection, it will be given to the Friends of the Library.
  • Items in the collection will rotate and may be withdrawn according to Retention and Weeding policy.
