Library hosts holiday open house; authors should apply by Oct. 17

Following from Jennifer Compton with St. Charles City-County Library

Dear Local Author:

You are invited to participate in the St. Charles City-County Library District’s Sixth Annual Local Author Open House!

This year’s Open House will be held on Thursday, November 13th, at the Middendorf-Kredell Branch Library, 2750 Highway K, O'Fallon, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Each holiday season, the Library District offers an opportunity for our local authors to connect with our customers. As an author participant, we will be able to provide you with a small "booth" or table. We will offer refreshments and a festive atmosphere and visitors can stroll through, chat, purchase your book and have it signed. We ask that you sell your own books, please. Our goal is to foster connections between the many authors in the area and our many readers. The open house is also a great way to network with other authors.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the growing success of this event (53 authors last year!) and limited floor space in the branch, this year we are are only able to make booths available to authors who have published a book in the past three years or who have not yet had the opportunity to participate in the Local Author Open House.

If you would like to participate, please email us with the following before Friday, October 17th:


Title of your book(s):

Phone Number:

Email address:

Publish Date:

If you are unable to confirm by October 17th we will not be able to guarantee that your name and book title will appear on the promotional material but we may still be able to reserve a booth for you.

If possible, please attach an image of your book cover for publicity purposes.

Please feel free to spread the word to any others who may want to participate, we would love to have them.

Jennifer & Sara
