Help & Resources
US libraries are already contributing to economic vitality in virtually every community across the country. We have a critical role in addressing inequities in opportunity. Almost 1 in 2 libraries in the US already provides free services to entrepreneurs who wish to start and grow their business. These range from offering free access to market trends databases to hosting business coaching classes, and providing incubation space.
Librarians are equipped to connect you with the resources and help you need to launch your small business initiative or entrepreneurial idea. Whether you need help writing a business plan, seeking money, growing your small business, or launching a nonprofit. The Independence Public Library can help you with your journey.
