Schedule a Librarian – Did you know that you can schedule a personal tour of our Business Resources with a library staff member? During your appointment, library staff will showcase tools to help with business development, demographic research, and more. One hour appointments can be scheduled at least 24-hours in advance. Make your appointment by contacting the Business Outreach Specialists or filling out an appointment form for either an in-person or virtual meeting.

Improve your marketing efforts – With your library card, you have access to databases that can help you identify your current market, find new customers, or help with your plans for expansion. SimplyAnalytics, for instance, gives you the ability to complete a demographic study of any location you choose nationwide. Along with traditional demographic information (population, income, household size, etc.), SimplyAnalytics gives you insights into how consumers live and spend their money. This valuable information can be implemented when deciding what markets to target and what types of advertising to use. It is also a great tool to utilize when considering a new location.
