With the emergence of eBooks, the Edwards have shifted their focus from print to digital books and media.

As a result of the Edwards donation, the library now boasts well-stocked shelves with resources for those to be helped by the Small Business Development Center.

The business books donated by the Edwards cover such topics as business planning, marketing, finance, and how to start specific businesses. Included among the books are those authored by the Edwards,  whose work includes Working From Home, the first commercially published book about how to work from home, The Best Home Businesses for People 50+, Finding Your Perfect Work,  Getting Business to Come To You, Home-Based Business for Dummies, Secrets of Self-Employment, and their most recent, Middle Class Lifeboat.

The Edwards have updated most of their books for eBooks and they are available in their own Elm Street Library.  In addition, their eBooks are distributed as Kindle Books, and through Barnes & Noble, Lightning Source, Overdrive, and Mobi.

“The sbdc is most grateful for the Edwards’ donation of such a valuable and wonderful library to our Business Resource Center,” said Bret O’Connor, Director of the SBDC in Long Beach. “The donation will enable us to provide the resources our clients need.”

The SBDC provides business training and advising to entrepreneurs and small businesses to help them start, grow and succeed.
