Each month, from September through June, seasoned professionals offer guidance on start-ups, procurement opportunities, legal considerations, marketing, record keeping and more. The Business & Social Sciences Division of the Central Library of Rochester & Monroe County and the College at Brockport Small Business Development Center (SBDC) are sponsoring these free workshops.
All workshops are held on the first Wednesday of each month from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Kate Gleason Auditorium, on the first floor of Central Library's Bausch & Lomb Public Library Building.
Pre-registration for these programs is requested. Register by calling the Central Library at (585) 428-8130, or click on the link next to the program to register online.
