Book Design Workshops

Book design workshops provided by Publishing Services are currently available by request with at least one month's notice. Workshops are free to attend and include a two-hour presentation with an introduction to library publishing services, self-publishing resources, and techniques for formatting a book or photobook using either Microsoft Word or Adobe InDesign. 

Virtual and in-person workshops are available for classes, book clubs, student/community organizations, or groups with at least three attendees. Please contact Julie Taylor to schedule a date and time for your workshop. 

Individuals interested in learning about book design and publishing can request a consultation.
