(19 December 2018, Washington, DC.) Public libraries are uniquely positioned to support individuals in pursuing their entrepreneurial dreams by offering free access to technology, meeting spaces, skills training, information and networking opportunities. However, there is no set model for how libraries can best leverage those assets, and there are opportunities for all libraries to elevate their position in their community’s entrepreneurial ecosystem.
The Urban Libraries Council has released a new toolkit that helps libraries enhance their entrepreneurship services by adopting an entrepreneurial mindset of continuous discovery and change. Available on the ULC website, the toolkit provides regularly-updated strategies and resources to help libraries reach greater success in key areas of their entrepreneurial support.
