Libraries play a critical role in the economic vitality of communities by providing internet and technology access, literacy skills, and support for job seekers, small businesses and entrepreneurs. Wayne County Public Library supports its community through partnerships and programs that empower local entrepreneurs, businesses, and job seekers.
