Yesterday, a friend and writing colleague told me she asked her local library to order in my latest book: Darlings of Dress: Children’s Costume 1860 – 1920. They did, and she is thrilled to know she’ll be the first to crack oopen that brand new book.
If you’re a card-carrying member of a public library you can do the same. It’s possible to do it in person or on-line. Give them the name of the book, the author (be sure and spell Shephard with an “A”), and they should be able to find it.
But, hey, why not read them for free!
So, talk to your local librarian, ask for the book of your choice, and enjoy. Leave me a comment to let me know how you make out.
