Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is the Glendale IDEA Center?
A: The Glendale IDEA Center (Glendale Innovation Development and Entrepreneurial Assistance Center) is a space at the Glendale Main Library where business people, entrepreneurs, innovators and networkers can come together to share ideas, tips, and skills, learn more about starting and growing a business, form partnerships or just make connections. This will also be a place where people can receive career advice and assistance.

Q: What will the Glendale IDEA Center offer?
A: The Glendale IDEA Center will have a dedicated computer available for business research. Thanks to Council District funding we will have a laptop for Skype interviews, a media room with cameras (still and video), a green screen, lights, sound equipment and a multimedia computer with Adobe Premiere Elements and Adobe Photoshop Premier for photo and video editing. We will have informal seating and two smaller areas that can be used for meetings. These areas will include whiteboard projection screens and a portable projector.

Currently, there are three dedicated job search computers, a FlashForge Creator Pro 3D Printer available for businesses or entrepreneurs who may need a prototype or for hobbyists and cosplayers/costume designers, a BW/Color scanner, a meeting table and seating with a whiteboard/projection screen and a collection of business and career books and reference materials for use and checkout.

We offer programs on job search skills (successful interviewing, resume writing and 21st century job searching), one-on-one mentoring and workshops led by SCORE and, thanks to a partnership with Arizona State University and Glendale Economic Development, we are offering ASU’s Startup School classes; a six-part course on how to start and grow a business.

We have developed partnerships with Glendale Economic Development, Service Core of Retired Executives (SCORE), Internal Revenue Service, Arizona Small Business Association, Arizona Commerce Authority and the Office of the Attorney General to provide public programming. Patrons have opportunities to meet with mentors from SCORE and Glendale Economic Development.

We now offer free résumé printing (up to 5 pages). To receive your free résumé copies, please sign into one of the public computers at the Glendale Main Library, send your résumé(s) to the black and white printer, and ask at one of our two service desks (Ask Here or Youth) for your print job to be released.

Q: What if someone would like to present a program?
A: A co-sponsored program application and policy handout will be available for people who would like to present.

Q: Who can I contact for more information on the Glendale IDEA Center?
A: For questions and information, please contact Michael Schor at mschor@glendaleaz.com or 623-930-3549.
