Does Your Library Have One of These?

There are many libraries doing great work with their local businesspeople. For example, The Carson City Library has a Business Resource Innovation Center (BRIC) devoted to helping local businesses succeed. Check it out here.

If I were in charge (ha!) I would take it a step further and coordinate my employment resources with my local business resources and bring these two areas together into a Business and Employment Resource Center. This could be a small section of a small library where a few computers and bookshelves are available. In huge metropolitan library, it could be an entire wing of the library.

In tough economic times libraries aid in these areas are most needed. Besides, it doesn’t hurt to build community ties with local businesspeople who may decide to become a benefactor to your library. But perhaps the most important reason for having a designated space to Business and Employment is to connect people with potential employers. Resume Writing help, Online Job Application navigation, putting together a Mock Interview session/class, all these things libraries can offer, could be put under the umbrella of a Business and Employment Resource Center.
