By Stacy Perman

Public libraries get their due in this Business Week Small Business article. The author talks about entrepreneurs who discover " that owning a business takes a lot more than just raising money and finding a location". The article discusses how business-owners can learn how to write a business plan, create a website, and praises librarians as "the most valuable resource".
Apparently, according to a 2006 study by the American Library Association, 61% of small businesses found libraries to be important in getting them started.
