‘Libraries Lead with Digital Skills’ Series Focuses on Small Business

The New Braunfels Public Library will be hosting a series of programs intended to educate small-business owners and startups about free digital and community resources

that can help them manage, promote, and grow their business as part of the library’s participation in Libraries Lead with Digital Skills.  Libraries Lead with Digital Skills is an American Libraries Association and Public Libraries Association initiative sponsored by Grow with Google, the tech company’s economic opportunity initiative.

“We are excited to partner with ALA, PLA and Google to bring awareness of the many free tools and resources available to small businesses and startups in our community,” said Adult Services Librarian Lori Krinkey. “Our first virtual program will be an overview of those resources.”  

The first program in the series is called “Information: Your Key to Business Success!” and will be held on Wednesday, July 29, from 2-3 p.m. Registration is available online at nbtexas.libcal.com/event/6857875.

The program is intended to teach participants how to discover a wealth of free information including writing a business plan, finding tools to research your market and find customers, using Grow with Google resources to promote your business online, accessing free computer skills training, and finding resources to network with other business leaders and find mentors in the community.  Future programs will seek to include partnerships with community business organizations.

This program is funded by Libraries Lead with Digital Skills, which was created so that local libraries can combine their own program offerings with Grow with Google training materials to offer virtual community workshops and other activities aimed at empowering small businesses to grow online and in their community.
