Business Start-Up Book Bags

The Library System of Lancaster is pleased to offer a valuable new resource to prospective business owners in the form of a Business Start-Up Book Bag!

These Book Bags are available to check out for a two week loan at public libraries in Lancaster County.  By borrowing this Business Start-up Book Bag, you’ve taken the first step towards possible business ownership.  The books and information packet contained in the bag will provide you with small business basics and answer many preliminary questions you might have.

The four books included in the bag are:

Start Your Own Business, by Rieva Lesonsky

How to Write a Business Plan (includes CD), by Mike McKeever

Legal Guide for Starting & Running a Small Business, by Attorney Fred S. Steingold

Financing Your Business: Get a Grip on Finding the Money, by Angie Mohr

In addition to books, you will find a  removable plastic information packet for you to keep as a ready reference!  Items included in the packet include:

• Six-page business start-up toolkit
• Duke Street Business Center info sheet with contact info and hours
• List of county and state business organizations
• List of reference titles available at the Duke Street Business Center
• List of business databases, most of which are available via remote access
• Contact information for SCORE Lancaster

Business Book Bags are available at all Lancaster County Public Libraries and may be checked out for a two-week loan period. They may also be reserved by going on the OPAC (Online Public Access Catalog).  Simply search the catalog by using the keyword: “Business Book Bag”.

In addition to these resources, there is also a wealth of information available under our Business Information Link.
