Every year, more than 500,000 entrepreneurs start new businesses in the United States. But how and where to they get the resources and support it takes to succeed? The answer is @ your library.
This spring, the Birmingham Public Library, the American Library Association and Woman’s Day magazine want to know how people in our community have used the library to start their small businesses. From now until May 10, women entrepreneurs over the age of 18 can send their story in 700 words of less to firstname.lastname@example.org. Four stories will be featured in the March 2008 issue of Woman’s Day.
More information, including the official rules, are available at www.womansday.com/ala.
The initiative is part of a program sponsored by Woman’s Day and the American Library Association’s Campaign for America’s Libraries, a multi-year public awareness and advocacy campaign designed to promote the value of libraries and librarians in the 21st century.
