My Book in the Libraries
1/23/2010 8:52:48 PM
Ya gotta love it. My book is going to be featured at the Windsor Public Libraries. This is a real accomplishment. I feel good!
Here is the email that I received a few days ago.
Thanks for dropping a copy of your book off at the Windsor Public Library. We are certainly interested in adding a copy to the Central Library's collection. First, though, I have a couple of questions.
1) Is the copy that you dropped off a donation? Local authors oftentimes donate a a copy with the hope that the library will purchase additional ones. If it is a donation what I'll do is add it to our reference Local History collection and then purchase an additional copy for our circulating collection. I fit isn't meant as a donation how would you like to pick it up? I'm also going to check with the librarian who orders books for the other branches in the system to see if he is interested in ordering additional copies for his libraries. I'll send him your package so he can look it over. I should point out that due to smaller collections budgets our ability to purchase multiple copies of individual titles has been somewhat curtailed.
2) Fiction or non-fiction? The newspaper article uses the term "novel" which usually connotes fiction but I read through a bit of the book and it seems like it might be more of a memoir (non-fiction). We just need to know so we can catalogue it correctly!
3) What is the best way for us to go about ordering copies? We are still awaiting final word on our 2010 budget so no orders will be able to go through at the moment but hopefully things get settled soon and we can start ordering again!
Thanks so much. I love forward to hearing back from you.

I love it!
