So, You're Telling Me There's A Chance...My Books Could End Up In The Library!

My co-worker at the library and I were talking about one of the patrons that frequents the establishment.

"He's a writer, you know?" I, in fact, did not know. "Yeah, he's self-published. He's even got a few books on the shelf."

"Books that you can check out?" I asked.

"Yeah. He sometimes asks me if I've checked them out and read them--what he writes isn't really my style."

I wasn't so much concerned with that author's writing style as I was excited.

"Can anyone's books be put into the library system?"

"Sure," he said. "You can submit a request for the library to stock a book--it's no big deal. They may not do it, but that's probably how he got his books on the shelf."

Phineas, I know what we're going to do today!

Okay, maybe not today, but soon. I'll let you know how it all turns out.


  1. I asked my librarian friend about getting my book into the library. There is a bit of red tape. Here is a web page she sent me to help with the process.

    1. Thanks for the info! I'll definitely check it out and let you know what happens!

    2. Good luck! I'm excited for you!
