Ask About Business is a partnership between fourteen library authorities across the north west.
Led by Manchester Library & Information Service, Ask About Business provides information through libraries to support:
If you don't know where to start, we can help: locally and at a convenient time. If your local library can't answer your enquiry straightaway they will try and help you within one working day.
Telephone us on 0161 234 1991 (Monday - Thursday 9:00 - 19:45 Friday & Saturday 9:00 - 16:45).
Libraries support business: the resources available in libraries across the sub-region can help entrepreneurs and small businesses to plan, find funding, and market their products and services. This increases employment and prosperity for the area. It also provides the opportunity for many microbusinesses and self-employed people to gain access to industry-standard information at no charge.
Libraries support employment issues through access to information for the unemployed and those seeking to improve their skills. Libraries help visitors to the UK in their search for work and to obtain the skills they need to enter the job market. Libraries play an important part in raising aspirations.
