Library Purchasing Guidelines for Authors

  1. The Durango Public Library routinely purchases materials in a variety of formats from commercial publishers that fit the Library’s selection criteria and priorities for selection. We also may acquire self-published items when they include unique local content and fit the scope of the Library’s Collection Development Policy. A positive review in a major review or trade journal is the best way to bring a title to our attention. We are more likely to consider the addition of a self-published work if it has been reviewed. Due to staffing and time constraints, we are not able to meet with individual authors; nor can we accept review copies. If you are an author and would like us to consider your material for the collection, please fill out and submit the following form.
