BIRMINGHAM, Alabama-The Birmingham Public Library is partnering with the Birmingham chapter of the Service Corp of Retired Executives (SCORE) to host a free small business workshop on Monday, April 3, 2017. The workshop series, Steps to Starting a Business, takes place monthly on the first Monday at the Central Library, 2100 Park Place downtown. 

The workshop will be from noon to 1 p.m. in the Arrington Auditorium, 4th Floor, Linn-Henley Research Building.  The seminar is free, but registration in advance is required. Call Andy Mayo in the City of Birmingham’s Office of Economic Development at (205) 254-2774 or email him at

Upcoming Dates confirmed for other “Steps to Stating a Business” workshops are Monday, May 1, 2017 and Monday June 5, 2017. Both seminars are from noon to 1 p.m. Each seminar will cover the same topics, but the public is welcome to attend more than one day.
