Local & Self-Published Authors

SDCL collects a variety of books and media that are written, published and/or produced locally. We are now accepting submissions of physical copies of locally produced books, DVDs and/or music CDs for review. To submit your item for consideration, print out a copy of the Local/Self-Published Author Donation Form and drop it off with one copy of your work at any of San Diego County Library's branches. This document also contains information about the library's selection process.

Please note: The SELF-e service has been discontinued. We are happy to accept physical copies of your books, DVDs and music CDs using the process above. Thank You.
