In the fall of 2007, the library began to assemble a research collection of the works of Morris County authors, living and dead. These writers either grew up in Morris County (Gene Shalit), currently reside here (Charles Haas), or spent the majority of their writing years here (Abner Doubleday). These non-circulating titles are accompanied by biographies and news stories about the writers. Many of these books are also in the circulating collection.
We welcome donations of works by these writers. We have 388 authors (and their 1,400+ books) so far. Let us know if you are aware of other county writers who should be recognized in the Morris Authors Collection.
