Bring your small business dreams closer to reality

DiscussionDo you feel like you could go into business for yourself, but just don’t know all the things that could make that really happen?

Norman Public Library Central seeks to answer those questions with its program “Starting a Small Business,” on Tuesday, May 2, in the Lowry Room.

The event has two sessions and participants may attend either or both. Part one, from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., focuses on business start-up and available resources. The second part focuses on writing a business plan and how to seek funding.

Representatives from the Small Business Administration and multiple resource partners will be on hand to give an overview of opportunities available for prospective small business owners.

The event is for ages 18 and up, and registration is required to attend.
