Be a Small Business Advocate

Nearly half of all U.S. workers are employed by small business owners.1 That means 60.6 million workers, their families, and the local economy depend on the success of small businesses.

Under ordinary conditions, the survival rate for small businesses after five years is only 48 percent and decreases significantly over time.2 In extraordinary times of crisis, like the one we’re facing now, small businesses are hit the hardest. Your community needs timely help and services. 

With the Gale Business Suite, your library can answer the call.
