Authors on Demand

Reserving new releases from your favorite authors just got easier!


Sign up for the Waterloo Public Library's Authors on Demand service, and your name will automatically be added to the reserve list for new fiction releases by the authors you select.

Here's how it works:

  • You must have a valid Waterloo Public Library card
  • Enter your name and library card number
  • Select each author whose new books you want to read and click "submit" at the bottom of the screen
  • We will contact you when your book is ready to pick up


Note: Library staff will rotate the reserve list. Updates or additions to your list of authors can be made with this form. However, if you wish to cancel this service, please contact us at or 291-4480.
