Local Authors!

Ask us about scheduling a meet and greet at the library! You can set up a table for around an hour where you can say hi to anyone who comes into the library, promote yourself and materials, and sell & sign your books! You can temporarily loan out a few copies of your book, and we will put them out on the shelf for the month with a sign promoting your meet and greet time. All you have to do during your scheduled month is promote your meet and greet with any of your friends, family, colleagues, etc…
