Local resources for businesses


“For a small business like mine, the Elmhurst Public Library gives me free access to essential demographic data and public records that would cost me $100s, if not $1,000s, if I had to buy the data directly from the very same companies who let me use them for free through the library! Through these databases, I can identify, mail, or even call my best prospects from anywhere in Chicagoland or throughout Illinois. If there is a better way to build a business, please let me know!”
