You may be aware of the many wonderful books, movies, and programs that our public libraries have available for personal use, but did you know local library has resources available for businesses too?

Recently, KMA presented “New Employer 101” at Southern Maine Community College’s “Launch or Grow Small Business Success Conference.” One of the things we learned is that there are a bunch of great resources and information available at no cost to businesses through their local libraries.

This includes resources such as business plans, data on consumer spending habits, business directories, and more.

Some libraries, such as the Portland Public Library, have many of these resources available online, including resources specific to small businesses . . . so next time you walk in to your local library, or log on to their website, check them out!
