I did a little research this week and discovered that libraries around the country carry several of my books. The list includes:
- Vancouver (Washington) Regional Library System
- Yolo County Library, Woodland, CA
- Saint Charles City – County Library District, Saint Peters, MO
- Westfield (MA) Aethenaeum
- Board of Regents School District #901, Normal, IL
- Camas (Washington) Public Library
- Multnomah County (Oregon) Library
- Oklahoma City Metropolitan Library System
- Rochester Public Library, Rochester, NY
- Libraries in Clackamas County (LINCC), Oregon City, OR
- Albany (OR) Public Library
- Lee County Library System, Fort Myers, FL
The list will grow, as I’ve been in touch with several in the past week who have indicated that they’re likely to stock it.
Is your library on the list? If not, did you know that most libraries will carry a title if a local library card holder requests it?
Asking your library to stock an indie writer’s title is a win-win-win-win situation:
- The library wins, because they know they’re spending their dollars on books you really want.
- You win, because you can read the book free and don’t have to find precious bookshelf space to store it.
- Others in your community win, because they can read the book for free also.
- And of course, the author wins, because more people are reading their books.
Who’s your library? Let me know if they carry A Woman of Valor or any of my other books, and I’ll add them to the list!
