Join us at the Deckle Edge Literary Arts Festival on Sunday, February 21, at 3:00 p.m. for the launch of Indie SC.  This informative session, held at the Columbia Museum of Art, is free and open to the public.

The South Carolina State Library is pleased to be the first state library in the country to make the SELF-e digital self-publishing platform available to all public libraries in the state as well as our cardholders - for FREE! With BiblioBoard's SELF-e uploading tools, you can upload your ebook - whether it is a family history or the next great American novel - and after a review process, it will be made available to local readers via the Indie South Carolina (Indie SC) online catalog. Through a partnership with Library Journal, ebooks published on the SELF-e platform may be reviewed and included in Indie SC.

Join us for this official launch and an overview of how to be a part of this great self-publishing opportunity!
