Description: 

Public libraries have long made published works available. Now your community is creating content and self-publishing online and in print. How are libraries transforming their communities with self-publishing? Libraries are encouraging content creation rather than simple consumption, recording the community's stories, and helping local authors. Learn how three libraries are bringing self-published works to life with new programming opportunities and community collaborations. Provincetown (MA) Public Library, State University of New York at Geneseo, and Sacramento (CA) Public Library discuss their successes, cautionary tales, and how they sustain their self-publishing programs.
