What a great thing this local library is doing. I also love the tagline, "Your Library, Your Lifeline." If that doesn't frame the library as essential, I don't know what would!
Here's part of the press release:
"Camden County Libraries Partner with SCORE to Help Small Businesses
Your Library, Your Lifeline program expands to help in hard economy.
VOORHEES, N.J. – May 19, 2009 -- The Camden County Library System continues its initiative - Your Library, Your Lifeline - by enlisting SCORE (Service Corps of Retired Executives) to provide entrepreneur education and valuable information for small businesses this summer.
SCORE is a nonprofit association dedicated to the education of entrepreneurs and the formation, growth and success of small business all across the United States by providing free counseling services."
They are offering programs on Starting Your Own Business and on Marketing Your Small Business. Nice! Smart! Helpful! Valuable partnership!
