Do you want to form meaningful relationships with the small business owners, professionals, and job seekers in your public library’s community? Are members of your business community unaware of the value that their public library provides to their daily lives? In this webinar, presenter Barbara Alvarez will discuss how to take your connections with the business community to the next level through embedded networking and sustainable structured library services. Additionally she will cover programs and initiatives, networking events, workshops and the value of creating coworking spaces in the library. At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:

  • Be able to identify the components of embedded business librarianship and how it differs from providing outreach
  • Be able to implement the 5-step process to navigating your library’s business community
  • Be able to tailor specific library services and initiatives toward growing stronger relationships with the business community

This webinar will be of interest to: Public librarians who currently provide or want to provide outreach and/or business services to the community. This webinar is ideal for librarians who are brand-new to building relationships with the business community.
