Where:   GoToWebinar (Web Conference/Webinar)

The popularity of self-publishing continues to grow. This popularity provides libraries with an excellent opportunity to foster the creativity of their local talent while also enriching their community’s access to local literature.
This webinar will provide resources and strategies for implementing programming and developing services to support writers, making the library the go-to spot for local authors.
Get the answers to the major questions about working with local self-published authors in one awesome webinar session.

How can my library support the needs of local self-published authors?
The needs of local authors will be discussed and strategies for libraries to support them– from supporting local writing groups to research assistance to a one-stop solution for local authors to write, format and publish their book in the major eformats (ePUB, Mobi and PDF).

How can my library identify and promote quality self-published titles from our community and across Illinois?
Library staff are uniquely qualified at identifying what their patrons need and read. Learn how you can point them to quality local titles that can be read by multiple users simultaneously throughout the community for book clubs, classroom usage and one book/one community programs.

How can my library celebrate local authors and help them connect with the rest of our community at the same time?
Best practices to showcase top-notch local authors and to highlight the best through local programming and events will be featured.
Learn how to plan events to help local writers engage with each other and other community members to strengthen your community and your library’s place in the community.
