November is NaNoWriMo!

As November comes to a close, emerging authors from all over the world are finishing up writing projects for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). This is the perfect time to let them know how your library can support their creative endeavors. Reach out to local writers’ groups and “Come Write In!” spaces to remind them of the BiblioBoard tools and services that you offer.
News + Notes
  • Using Pressbooks Public, a digital self-publishing tool, authors can create, format, design, and produce professional-quality print-ready and eBook files. Access is available through the library’s subscription, so no cost to authors. NaNoWriMo participants will be ready to finalize their projects with the help of Pressbooks Public.

  • Local authors can increase exposure of their book by submitting it to the SELF-e program and sharing with their community. Authors have the chance for both statewide and national exposure, all while retaining rights to their work. Learn more here.

  • Enhance discoverability of your local author collections by customizing your BiblioBoard Library homepage using Desk Curations. We have quick and easy training materials, a video tutorial, and live trainings available to help you customize your homepage just the way you want it. We’re even happy to customize your BIblioBoard Library homepage for you! Contact us at [email protected] to get started.
  • We do author workshops! Host one in your library and invite local authors to attend in person as we cover how to use the BiblioBoard tools that are available to them through the library.
