Local Author Material Request

This form is for local authors to request their material to be purchased and added to the Timberland Regional Library collection.

The Timberland Regional Library maintains a Local Authors collection in our physical collection and we welcome additions. 

A local author is a person who lives in the library district's five county service area (Grays Harbor, Lewis, Mason, Pacific, and Thurston Counties) or who has ties to the area that are evident in their work.

As a local author, you may either donate copies of your work to your local TRL library or fill out the form below to request addition to the collection.

Either your local library or the librarians in the Collection Services Department will decide whether an author's work is appropriate for the Local Authors collection. In making purchase decisions, the librarians are guided by the Collection of Materials Policy and the selection criteria that are included in the Collection Guidelines. Due to the large volume of suggestions received, we are unable to purchase all requested materials. 

Need help? Please either use our LiveChat feature in the bottom right of your screen, contact your local library branch, or Ask A Librarian.
