Guidelines for Self-Published Authors

Though we sometimes purchase self-published books by area authors, we do so very selectively (informed by our Materials Selection Policy). We are most likely to purchase self-published books that have received significant local interest or media attention. It is also helpful if the book has received one or more reviews from objective online or print sources (not paid or customer reviews).

We do not accept sample copies of books at our service desks. Those wishing to suggest that we purchase their book must have a valid St. Albert Public Library card and should use our Suggest an Item form on our website, using the Notes area on the form to tell us any relevant information about their book.
