From getting inspired at our Maker Faire, to learning how to make something of your own at one of our awesome craft programs, to turning that new skill into a business that will actually make you money – what the heck can’t you do at the library?!
(Well, you can’t buy things – because it’s all free.)
The library has a lot of really great resources to help you get a job, start a business, tell people about your business, make your business grow, hold important business meetings, and retire to a nice island somewhere.
If you’re looking for a job, the Career Center is the place for you. The librarians there can help you with every step of the job search from figuring out what you might want to do through actually interviewing for the job that’s right for you (we’ve got Skype!). Read our September blog post for more information, or check out their website by clicking on the banner above.
Want to be your own boss? After we help you get some start-up funding with our grant resources, the Gale Small Business Resource Center is basically your one-stop shop for all the forms you’ll need, including sample business plans you can use as a jumping-off point AND a database of up-to-the-minute articles on the most pressing issues small businesses face today.
Do you just really like books? So do we! In addition to information on the electronic resources listed here (and many more), we’ve got an infoguide on Business in the Library that has lists of books on all subjects business-related, including a whole section on how and why to use social media to make your goods or services go viral.
And when all that’s done and you’re ready to kick back, we’ve still got you covered: check out our travel resources for everything from guidebooks to language lessons.
Maybe think of us a little, when you make your first million. But even if you don’t we’re always glad to help you however we can.
