Library Like… A Boss

“Everything you need for better future and success has already been written. And guess what? All you have to do is go to the library.” —Henri Frederic Amiel

Whether you’re trying to start or get ahead in business, libraries are a great asset to have in your portfolio.

Looking for the latest business books? CPL has that. Prefer magazines? We've got those too. And of course, CPL has all sorts of databases—some you may not have even thought of.

Books for the Future Leader

Check out the 650-659 collection in adult nonfiction, off to the left as you enter the library—all of these titles focus on business.

You will find topics like starting and managing businesses, titles on how to be an effective leader, growing your business, help books from the most successful businesspeople in the world and more.

Stay Current with Magazines

Head back towards the Secondhand Prose Used Bookstore and you will find business magazines like Forbes, Harvard Business Review, Entrepreneur and Fortune.

Many magazines are also accessible online through Libby and hoopla. A good boss knows what’s at their disposal and utilizes those resources in every way possible. Grab your Canton Public Library card and get started with our digital resources.

Get Ahead of the Competition 

Being a boss means you’re often needed in multiple places at once. If you can’t make it to the library, try our databases to research from wherever you are.

Be sure to have your Canton Public Library card on hand as some resources will require it. Check out our full list of Business & Reference databases to find everything from information on investing to resources for small businesses. 

We're Rooting for You! 

Don’t be afraid to ask for help. If you have a question, our librarians can help find resources and solutions. Can't come in? Give us a call and we're happy to help over the phone or by email through Contact Us.

Spaces for Your Next Brainstorming Session 

Need to sit down and get some work done? Make use of CPL’s space. We have 12 study rooms, six of which are for one to two users while the other six are for groups ranging from four to 10 users. The large rooms have whiteboards, which make for a great space to brainstorm and study. Plus, they are perfect for meetings.

Grow Your Business with Tech

We have plenty of tech resources to help you stay on your A game. You’ll find dozens of computers in various locations throughout the library. We also have several printers, two of which have faxing capabilities—and faxing is free! All of them act as scanners as well for your copying or scanning needs.

With all these invaluable assets available at your fingertips—it's time for you to shine. Get out there, embrace the hustle and become the ultimate boss!
