From the ALA website:

The American Library Association (ALA), with the support of, is launching an initiative to identify and scale successful entrepreneurship programs in public libraries across the US and create learning resources for any library to support entrepreneurs in its community.

This initiative will identify successful, library-led models to deliver entrepreneurship training and resources, help them scale with a focus on underrepresented and low-income entrepreneurs, and create a playbook and peer-to-peer learning network available to all libraries so these successful models can be replicated across the country.
