Steps For Starting Your Own Business

  Have you ever thought about starting your own business but weren’t sure where to start? Sometimes reading a book about it helps, while other times taking a class can be better. SCORE(a volunteer group that offers business counseling to small business owners) is conducting a class on the things you might need to know for starting your own business, from  choosing the actual business to the financial organization involved in running it.

 Pre-registration is required for the Saturday afternoon class, March 9, 2013, starting at 2 pm and ending at 4 pm. Come with all your questions and find the answers you may need.

Movie at the Library February 22

What do you do when the  kids have an early release from school and they need something to do? This Friday  we will be showing a classic family movie about about a "lovingly pampered cocker spaniel ....and a roguish mutt from across the tracks." Showtime is 3pm and we'll supply the popcorn.
