Author Visit Subsidy

To help our libraries bring in authors for library programs, ten 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 Jill Kergan by e-mail (, courier or mail. The form may be filled out online or printed and filled out by hand. For author readings in 2023, the deadline for applications to be received by Peace Library System is October 31, 2024

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.

Libraries that receive the subsidy will be required to submit photos and a write-up to News & Notes in the next quarter after their program runs so everyone has a chance to learn about their author reading.
