B'ville's chamber, library announce partnership

The Baldwinsville Chamber of Commerce and the Baldwinsville Public Library are excited to announce a new partnership that will help businesses in the Greater Baldwinsville area.

Together, the chamber and the library will bring seminars on a variety of subjects including accounting software applications, legal issues and topics of interest to owners of women and minority owned business.

To assist the chamber and the library, a Small Business Advisory Group is forming with representation from several area businesses. This group will be instrumental in guiding the newly created partnership in planning events and other activities, which will best benefit the business community.

With federal stimulus monies secured through a Broadbandexpress@yourlibrary project from the U.S. Department of Commerce National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), the library has already created a small business resource center, which contains several resources for business owners and job-seekers. The library is offering one-on-one resume and cover letter help to those looking for work and hopes to eventually partner job-seekers with mentors in the community who can further assist them in finding employment.

Nancy Howe is the public computing center project librarian at the Baldwinsville Public Library. For more information, call her at 635-5631 or e-mail nancyh@bville.lib.ny.us.
