In the fall of 2007 the library began to assemble a research collection of the
works of Morris County authors, living and past. These writers either grew up in the area (Gene Shalit) or spend the majority of their writing years here (Abner Doubleday)--
or both (Charles Haas). The non-circulating titles are accompanied by biographies and news stories about the writers.
We welcome donations of works by these writers.
We have identified 390 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.
