Partner with RHPL
We work with the community to help deliver relevant information and services to our members. If you have a program you'd like to suggest, or a book submission for the library to review, read more below.
Our programs consist of events, author talks, workshops or performances that share timely and relevant information with our community. We welcome program proposals from community groups, performers or experts in their field who wish to collaborate with our team on an event. We give priority to events that complement our collections, services and the goals of our strategic plan. Programs are open to the public and are generally for a specific age group (babies/toddlers, kids, teens, adults, seniors, or family (all ages)).
Richmond Hill Public Library welcomes suggestions from self-published authors; however, we receive a large number of submissions and purchase self-published books very selectively.
We are most likely to purchase books that meet the criteria as defined in our Collection Development Policy, or that are of significant local interest or which have received media attention.
Please consult RHPL's Collection Development Policy for a complete list of the Library's selection criteria.
To have a self-published book considered for inclusion in the Library's collection, please complete our online application form.
Please do not send a sample of your book. If the selector wants to see it, the Library will buy a copy.
If you have self-published an eBook, please contact the Library eBook vendor OverDrive for inclusion in their catalogue. We, and other libraries, will then have access to your title.
