CNB Provides Funding for Library’s Business Center

September 28, 2012 | Return to News & Updates

In its continued efforts to recycle earnings back into the community through donations to worthwhile projects, County National Bank provided funding for the Hillsdale Community Library’s new Business Center.  The Business Center, located in the main area of the library, is a great resource for entrepreneurs to explore marketing data and gather information to start a new business or expand a current business. 

The Business Center is designed to help connect entrepreneurs with the resources they need from market research to business counseling. The online resource tools, Business Decision and Reference USA, are available to provide the needed information that can help a new venture get off the ground.  These data resources were secured through a grant that was awarded to the library by the Michigan Small Business Technology and Development Center.  CNB’s funding provided for the furniture, equipment, and computer needs.

County National Bank is excited that the Hillsdale Community Library’s Business Center is available at no charge to the community.  If you have any questions about the Business Center, or if you would like to make an appointment with SCORE, please contact LeAnn Beckwith, the library director, at 517-437-6472.
