Thursday September 25, 2014 JLB Creatives Publishing's senior editor Dar Bagby joined library manager Ann Marie Smith of the Pickford Community Library to give a cutting edge presentation at the UPRLC (Upper Peninsula Region of Library Cooperation) annual meeting.

Ann Marie opened with "Engaging Your Community's Writers and Readers: Libraries and ePublishing." Dar Bagby immediately followed filling in the details with her presentation "ePublishing and How It Influences the Community." This dynamic duo of risk takers knocked it out of the park for the nearly 60 attendees representing libraries from across the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and the executive director of the Midwest Collaborative for Library Sciences, Randy Dykhuis.
Dar is a co-facilitator/founder along with JLBCP's CEO Janet Beasley for the Young Writers Workshop (YWW) that takes place at the Pickford Community Library, Pickford Michigan.
Ann Marie holds accolades such as taking a community library from a circulation of under 400 to nearly 1600 per month in only two short years, and being bold enough to approach not only Dar, but others of the community to bring in many beneficial special programs that take place at the library.
You can expect to begin seeing Dar and Ann Marie at other appearances in the future throughout the entire state of Michigan.

Only 3 short days after this dynamic duo's appearance in Michigan's UP, JLB Creatives Publishing's CEO Janet Beasley and Senior Financial Director Jean E. Lane headed to St. Augustine to appear at the Florida Heritage Book Festival.
Janet gave a presentation regarding the innovative ways JLB Creatives Publishing is making a difference in the literary world, as well as shared some of their authors' works with the captive audience.

Florida Heritage Book Festival exhibit 2014
Back on the exhibit floor Janet and Jean E. teamed up to show off the collection of select JLBCP authors. In addition to selling books they both engaged in effective networking with other literary professionals, authors, and readers. JLBCP is definitely looking forward to making an appearance once again at this fabulous festival in 2015.
