Rebootus Maximus in Libraries?

I’m always looking for new and inventive ways to get “PC Weenies: Rebootus Maximus” into more hands. Of course, buying a copy for yourself is one option but I’m also very interested in getting the book into public libraries.

The only trouble is, I’m unable to find the right people to approach. I’m looking for any suggestions and tips on how to have libraries carry my book. Do libraries carry books by independent authors? It’s my understanding (based on the few librarians I’ve talked to here) that libraries go through specific book vendors. Is that the only option?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

P.S. If you’re a librarian and your library is interested in carrying “PC Weenies: Rebootus Maximus”, I would like to hear from you. Thanks!

    Hi Krishna. One idea could be to address some design universities and art academies throughout the USA and Europe. They are probably more perceptive for independent authors.
