Nottingham and Nottinghamshire libraries are playing a key role in helping the city and county recover economically following the pandemic.
Thanks to support from the British Library and Department for Culture, Media and Sport, people of all ages and walks of life across the city and county can access support to start and grow their businesses via a range of free online events and resources.
The British Library has announced a major expansion of its network of library-based Business & IP Centres (BIPCs) to over 100 regional and local libraries across England by 2023, including in Beeston, Bulwell, Mansfield and Sutton-in-Ashfield.

The BIPC network has a record of supporting people from all walks of
