Let the library help you build your business

The public library is a great place to work and to grow your business. Here in Arlington, the Robbins branch of the Arlington public system has its own business collection, one that includes books, periodicals and databases that you can access from the library or from home. And, it has a feature common to public libraries everywhere – a reference desk with staff whose job is to help you find what you need!

Arlington Entrepreneurs spoke with Linda Dyndiuk, the head of Adult Services at the library. The wealth of resources for entrepreneurs there surprised own own interviewer! Not only can you check out a state-of-the-art computer, you can also find parts of the library that are reserved for conversations. Need to study or research? Enjoy the quiet at the library. Need to speak with a client or conduct a one-on-one training? Find a place a place to talk at the Robbins.

Although the library has yet to open its own coffee shop, you can bring your own food and drink. Of course, if you need help accessing or understanding any of the library’s resources, a reference library will be on-hand to guide you through the process.
