Librarians should be paying attention to the October 2014 edition of Entrepreneur Magazine, see http://www.entrepreneur.com/. You can find the October 2014 edition either at the library or at newsstands, but check out the magazine’s website for subscription and other information.
In the article entitled “Get Schooled” (p.119) J.D. Roth noted how he used the resources at the public library to learn how to invest and save. He then created a website to share what he learned. Within five years he built a booming business from the site.
In the article “Play Pals” (p. 122) Michelle Goodman discusses the arrival of Play-I (now named Wonder Workshop) which is a company that has built robots for children ages 5 to 12 to help them learn how to code. See https://www.makewonder.com/. I have a feeling that we will be seeing these robots at an American Library Association Conference Exhibit Hall in the future. What are your thoughts?
