Welcome to the Licking County Library.

Author Registration

Local authors and illustrators representing fiction, nonfiction, local history, teen and children’s books will be available on all three levels of the Main Library. Authors feature copies of selected works available for purchasing and signing plus a platform to promote their published works and to meet members of the community.

When: Saturday, November 9, 2019 from 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Where: Main Library, 101 W. Main St., Newark, OH 43055

Who: If you are published or self-published and live in Licking County or the surrounding area, you are eligible to participate.

The library will provide one table and two chairs per author. Authors must bring their own books to sell and are responsible for all change and sales. The library does have WiFi if you want to bring a wireless credit card reader. Authors are also responsible for bringing a tablecloth, signage and any other items they want to use.

Based on the number of applications received, the library reserves the right to limit participation by selecting a representative sample of types of work and to determine which books are included in the fair.

We ask that you bring a copy of each of your books to donate to our collection and be used for promotional purposes. If LCL owns a copy, please disregard.
