Let the library help you nuture and grow your writing life. While we can’t guarantee that you will become as famous as James Patterson, we have resources to help promote and market your masterpiece.

Your book at the library
To see your book in the library’s collection:
- You can donate a print bound copy of the book to the Readers' Services Desk.
- We can purchase some books by local authors. To be considered for purchasing, the book needs to be available as a print bound book through a major book retailer.
By adding your book, you’ll join this growing collection of great titles by our talented local authors.

The Skokie writers' group meets at 7 pm on the last Monday of every month. The group includes aspiring and published authors all looking to improve their skills and workshop their writing. Bring a writing selection that you want to workshop.
