Teen entrepreneurs invited to local library

October 11, 2017 by  

The public library in London will be hosting a small business and invention workshop later this month.

The ‘StartUp! You’ seminar was designed for young entrepreneurs who are interested in turning their creative ideas or skills into a small home-based business.

New product inventions may be discussed, with information about obtaining a patent and using the internet to market their product. Information on where to obtain packaging supplies and how to ship products may be presented.

Many teens are passionate about a hobby or skill, like playing guitar or computer programming. Starting a small business using this skill, and using flyers and postcards to advertise the service, is likely to be among the topics discussed.

The London Public Library has a total of 15 branches, including Central, Glanworth and Masonville. The ‘StartUp! You’ seminar is just one of many events held at the branches of the library. Others include ‘A Book For Every Child’, ‘Youth Coffee House’ and ‘Teen Improv Night’.

Resources and support for teens are also offered at the library, including homework help, healthy lifestyle seminars and wellness workshops.

This free presentation will be held at the Cherryhill Branch of the London Public Library, on Tuesday, October 24, from 4:00 PM to 5:30 PM. Anyone aged 13 to 18 is invited to attend the event, which will be held in the Sam Katz Room of the branch.

The Cherryhill Branch of the library is located at 301 Oxford Street West. More information is available by calling 519-439-6456.
