Colorado Recognizes Teachers and Small Businesses

This week Colorado is recognizing two separate groups for their contributions to our state.  May 4-8, 2015, is Teacher Appreciation Week as well as Small Business Week.

Teacher Appreciation Week
As the school year draws to a close, this week has been set aside to thank teachers for all they have done for us.  Nearly everyone can recall a teacher or professor who inspired us, challenged us, or just made learning extra fun.  The Colorado Department of Higher Education encourages Coloradans to thank their favorite teacher by posting a message or video at #ThankATeacherCO.  Our library has numerous resources on teaching and teachers, including teacher education, licensing, evaluation, employment, recruitment, and more.  Search our web catalog for resources.

Small Business Week
The Colorado Secretary of State’s Office is highlighting National Small Business Week this week by directing business owners and researchers to the many resources available on their website, such as

·        Starting a business in Colorado tutorial

·        Filing tips

·        Helpful business links

·        Business FAQs

The SOS also points out that many resources are available from the Small Business Administration (SBA), which has posted a special Bulletin with resources for Small Business Week.  Also be sure to check out the Colorado Small Business Development Centers (SBDC), which offer locations around the state for business training and consulting.  They also offer the very helpful Colorado Business Resource Guide, available online or in print via checkout from our library, or you
can pick up a copy at your local SBDC location
