Boca Raton Public Library Offers New Online Resource, Gale Small Business Builder

Boca Raton, FL – Thanks to a generous donation from the Friends of BRPL, the Boca Raton Public Library now offers library cardholders free access to Gale Small Business Builder, an online tool that guides users through the steps and decisions needed to set up and launch a new business. This step-by-step approach helps users outline how their business will operate, work up a break-even analysis, create a business plan, and make financial projections.

“Gale Small Business Builder can pull in legal forms, documents, and other relevant content for small business owners as they go through the process of establishing and building their companies,” said Vicky Fitzsimmons, Digital Librarian. “This one-stop model saves time they would’ve spent chasing down outside resources and examples.”

“The Friends are quite pleased to fund Gale Small Business Builder as a service to Boca Library cardholders,” said Cyndi Bloom, President of the Friends of BRPL. “We believe this tool will be very helpful to individuals and business owners who want to have easy access to a full suite of business start-up resources at no cost to the cardholder. It is a wonderful addition to BRPL’s Digital Library.” The Friends raise funds for library programs through sales from its bookstore, member contributions, and donors.

Small business owners and entrepreneurs are also encouraged to take part in Small Business Week at the Downtown and Spanish River libraries from May 6–11, featuring a wide variety of classes to help them find resources and services to grow their business. Visit the Library’s Calendar at for class listings.
