Hello Libswork!


Writing to you from ALA’s Libraries Build Business initiative with an upcoming opportunity. We are excited to announce our forthcoming book, 25 Libraries that Build Business! In partnership with ALA Editions, the Libraries Build Business initiative will develop a practical, hands-on book highlighting library business and entrepreneurship programs that can be adapted to another library context and share advice, resources, and “how-to” information from library workers experienced in implementing small business and entrepreneurship programs and services.


That’s where you come in! We are calling for 25-30 library profiles to be included in the book, and we’d love to feature your business or entrepreneur program and share your tips. Selected library programs will write a 1500-2000 word (approx. 4-5 pages) profile of their business program. If your program is selected, you are committing to writing the profile, working with me and our editors to refine and develop your chapter in alignment with the template, and being responsive to deadlines and communications from our team in order to meet our publishing deadlines and goals.


If you are interested in this opportunity, please complete this form with information about your program by Friday, July 16th. Please be thorough and describe your program in detail as we consider programs to feature in the book. We will be in touch if you are selected to write a profile.


If you have any questions about this book or our process, feel free to reach out to me. I’m happy to help.


Looking forward to working with many of you on this exciting initiative!


Best wishes,


Megan Janicki, M.Ed. (she/her)
