Partner Spotlight: Phoenix Public Library: Look for Free Solutions for your Business Needs
by Giselle Aguiar
December 19, 2022
Partner Spotlight Phoenix Public Library

Did you know that your local library has a bevy of free resources available to help your business succeed? Today, we're spotlighting the Phoenix Public Library and its special "StartupPHX" department, formerly known as "The Hive". The physical location on the 2nd floor of the main Burton Barr Downtown branch is currently undergoing renovations, thus, live workshops are suspended for the time being. As I understand it, the area will expand to include more computer stations and meeting rooms and a larger classroom for live workshops. We'll do an article once the renovations are done later this year. 

In the meantime, here is a list of FREE resources available with your library card. Obviously, if you don't live in the City of Phoenix, you can't access them. However, check your local library to see what types of online resources they have. 

Free Business Resources at the Phoenix Public Library

To access these, visit, then click on "Browse", then "Learning & Research".
