“We’re committed to helping start and grow businesses,” Lead Librarian for Business Kassy Rodeheaver said.
Rodeheaver and community-library staff members have lined up 40 classes that start Aug. 13 and run through December at 11 Sno-Isle libraries, including Mountlake Terrace and Lynnwood.
“We’ve got everything from ‘Steps to Starting a New Business’ to more advanced subjects such as ‘SEO and Getting Your Business to Rank on Google,’” Rodeheaver said.
Teaching the classes are 10 local and regional experts in a variety of business-support areas. Many have advanced business degrees and years of experience managing their own businesses.
Rodeheaver added that these classes are just some of the ongoing business-support programs at Sno-Isle Libraries. “We’ve got programs going on all the time in our libraries and we’re adding new resources and new offerings; just check for the latest at our website, sno-isle.org/business.”
