There are more than 20,000 libraries in the U.S., providing not just books to their patrons, but a solid boost for authors. Libraries often feature sections for local authors, and host many literary events.
On October 8, 2016, libraries all over the country will be celebrating indie authors. If you have self-published, this is a golden opportunity for you to connect with readers, local resources, and other writers!
