Local Author Collection

The History Room’s Local Author Collection includes many books written by current or past Mill Valley residents, or by authors who have a significant association with the city. The Local Author Collection must be used inside the Library, but there are many duplicates in the circulating collection available for loan. Visit us to browse our collection, or get started online by clicking the “Local Author Collection” link above.

If you are a local author who is not represented in this collection and would like to be, we invite you to donate copies of your books. Please contact History Room staff at hist@cityofmillvalley.org.
