Create
Using Pressbooks, you can bring your unique digital stories to life. You can write, edit and design your book, and book cover, with ease. You can also create your own BiblioBoard Library experience by customizing your BiblioBoard Library homepage and creating a user profile.
Share
With the Indie Author Project program, local authors can share their work with the community and gain more exposure. After submitting your book on the Indie Author Project, your book will be available in libraries across Texas. Select books will be available across the country.
Discover
In BiblioBoard Library, you have access to thousands of indie books, a Community Reads collection and more and you'll never experience a hold, checkout or lending limit. There are also historical and primary sources, some of which address our local history.
