The changing publishing landscape opens opportunities for librarians to take on a new role as community publishers. Learn how Timberland Regional Library engaged with local communities to publish a short story anthology with work from local authors and artists, which then became the focus of the district's big community read initiative.
This session will cover the process and considerations in pursuing a publishing program from initial concept, approval and funding to development, production and distribution. Attendees will come away with information to evaluate and implement a community publishing program.
