Celebrating Black History Month


With partners and resources such as the Small Business Development Center, Economic Development, Chamber of Commerce, College of Southern MD, and a number of premium online resources, the library is able to offer small businesses the support and training they need to get their business off the ground.


The history of business-building in the Black community is one that hasn't been discussed much. We'll be showing a documentary this month to open the conversation.
