Community Spotlight Collection

Kirkwood Public Library values our local authors and encourages the inclusion of their work in our collection.  The Community Spotlight Collection is a place for our area talent to share their work with the entire Kirkwood community.

Are you a local author, musician, or filmmaker? This collection is for you! The Community Spotlight is on CDs, DVDs, and fiction and nonfiction books by local creators, or on items featuring the St. Louis region.

To find out if your work is eligible for inclusion, click here to review the full policy.
