Sienna Branch Library Hosts Workshops for Entrepreneurs

The Sienna Branch Library will present two programs in March for small-business owners who would like tips on ways to promote and grow their business for free with library resources. Participants may choose to attend individual sessions or both programs.

The classes are free and open to the public. Seating is limited, however, and reservations are required. Participants may register online on the library’s website, by calling the library at 281-238-2900, or by visiting the library.
