Author Visit Subsidy

To help our libraries bring in authors for library programs, six PLS libraries this year will receive $250 to help subsidize the costs of an author reading, including virtual visits.

To be eligible for this subsidy, please fill out the application form linked below and submit it to Emma Stewart by e-mail (estewart@peacelibrarysystem.ab.ca), fax, courier or mail. The form may be filled out online or printed and filled out by hand. Please provide as much detail as possible.

For author readings in 2020, the deadline for applications to be received by Peace Library System is October 31, 2020

Your application will be reviewed and we will let you know if it is approved. If approved, you will receive a cheque of $250 made out to the library to reimburse program costs, the month after the program is expected to run.

The subsidy is first come first served, with preference given to libraries who have not received the subsidy in previous years.

Libraries who receive the subsidy will be required to submit photos and a writeup to News ‘N’ Notes in the next quarter after their program runs so everyone has a chance to learn about their author reading.
