Have you always wanted to be your own boss? Are you ready to start your own business, but don't know where to start? The library can help! Check out a book or two on starting a business (on display all week in the lobby), or stop by Information Services for a free New Business Start-Up Packet. These packets contain information and resources on both state and federal requirements for starting a small business, as well as forms to apply for an Employer Identification Number and an Assumed Business Name.
Looking for online resources? ReferenceUSA is a comprehensive database with listings of U.S. and Canadian businesses and white pages, available online 24/7 to library cardholders. If your business is non-profit, the Foundation Directory Online is accessible anywhere in the library and can help you find grants to get started. You can also find tons of advice on starting, managing, and funding a non-profit on grantspace.org.
