Due to current events, we are suspending our Author Book Submission service until 2021. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Please use this form to submit information about your book for possible inclusion in our collection. We will review your submission within the context of the library’s established selection criteria. Due to the volume of submissions receive, we are unable to contact or meet with each author individually, nor are we able to confirm whether or not we have decided to add the work. If accepted, the item will be purchased and added to our catalogue.
We prefer electronic versions of your work and supporting documentation, but if you must submit a hard copy, please note the following:
- All submissions are considered gifts and, as such, become the property of Hamilton Public Library.
- We are unable to purchase the book on consignment
- We are unable to return the book if we decide not to include it in our collection
The address for sending a copy is as follows:
Hamilton Public Library
Central Library—Collections Department
PO Box 2700
55 York Blvd.
Hamilton, ON L8N 4E4
