ALA Creates the Libraries Build Business Playbook to Support Entrepreneurship Programming

ALA introduced the Libraries Build Business Playbook, “which showcases emerging models for small business programming in public libraries. Created by library professionals, the Playbook aims to support libraries in starting or growing small business and entrepreneurship programs, especially focusing on those in underserved communities.” This practical guide is for “libraries seeking to start up or expand their own small business offerings” and it “covers promising practices and ideas for developing programs, from initial planning to reaching target audiences and sustaining services in the long term.”

The playbook comes out of ALA’s Libraries Build Business initiative, which started in 2020 with 13 public libraries of varying sizes. They received grants from to start or improve their small business programming, and their experiences informed the playbook.
