Submitting Your Book to the Vestavia Hills Library in the Forest
The Vestavia Hills Library in the Forest has a collection development policy in place to ensure all library collections meet the needs of our library users. Donated books will be considered for addition to the collection based on the library’s Materials Selection policy. Local and state authors who request their books be added to our collections are encouraged to read the Self-Published section of the library’s Materials Selection policy. Donated materials not added to the library’s collection will be sent to the Friends of the Library bookstore and will not be returned to the author. Self-published family histories will not be added to the library’s collection. Items added to the collection that do not circulate regularly will be subject to removal as part of the regular de-selection process.
