New Phoenix library co-working space open for budding entrepreneurs

“After years of working in a Phoenix call center, Marilyn Espinoza is itching to go into business doing something she’s passionate about, but she’s not quite sure where she’s headed or the road to get there. Of course, Espinoza has an idea she thinks could be a one-of-a-kind business — she’s just not willing to say what it is, at least not until she has a plan. That impulse to be an entrepreneur is what drove Espinoza to attend last week’s grand opening of the Hive @ Central, a new co-working space and business incubator at Burton Barr Central Library in central Phoenix. She said she’s hopeful it will provide her a place to meet with other people looking to start businesses.” (via azcentral.com)

Valley libraries flip a page in the digital age

ABC15 – “Valley librarians are working hard to make sure their books don’t collect dust in the digital age. In the era of instant downloads, when even big chain bookstores are closing, are public libraries still relevant? The numbers illustrate an interesting story. Rita Marko with the Phoenix Public Library tells ABC15 that physical visitors to the libraries are down 9 percent since 2010, online users are quite strong at 24 million hits so far this year. That’s on par with numbers from 2010.”
