Libraries can strengthen and further the progress and the prosperity of their communities by supporting local business owners and encouraging the growth of local and small businesses.

One easy way libraries help local business owners is by raising awareness and informing their communities about SCALEUP which is a high-value business development program created by Texas State University (TSU). SCALEUP is dedicated to assisting and advancing the success of entrepreneurs and small businesses, particularly minority-owned businesses.
