SCORE Workshop: Cost, Price and Profit

Cost and price are independent, yet together they determine your business success and profit. Pricing to be competitive and being profitable are not mutually exclusive. This workshop with SCORE Mentor Eric Munro explores how to develop costs and prices, separately, and avoid common pitfalls such as underestimating real costs, mixing your pricing message and trying to be the lowest price provider. 

Registration is required for this event; please reserve a seat at https://sect.score.org/content/take-workshop-141

The Environmental Activism of Beatrix Potter

   

Journalist and Scholar Tom Verde Gives a Talk on Beatrix Potter's Little-Known Conservationist Efforts!

While English author Beatrix Potter went on to fame and fortune as a children’s book writer and creator of Peter Rabbit, her true passion was preserving the landscape that provided inspiration for her stories: the hills and farms of western England’s stunning and dramatic Lake District.

Tom Verde will discuss how Potter, an active conservationist, practically single-handedly saved the Lake District from development and deforestation, using the proceeds of her books to fund her efforts.

This program is free and open to the public; no registration is required.

Passport to Connecticut Libraries!

Your library card opens the world to you through books, audio books, music CDs and DVDs.  Now let your library card open the doors of Connecticut libraries by participating in the Passport to Connecticut Libraries Program!

Over one hundred Connecticut libraries are proud to participate in the Connecticut Library Association’s Passport to Connecticut Libraries Program. To celebrate National Library Week during April, the Passport to Connecticut Libraries Program invites you to visit all of the participating Connecticut public libraries. Each library has its own architecture, vibe and collection to explore and browse! The program is open to adults and children, and the hope is that it encourages residents to explore the amazing diversity of our public libraries.  

To participate, visit the Mystic & Noank Library to pick up your Passport. They will stamp it and give you a token gift to get you started. Then, take your Passport along as you visit other participating libraries. At each visit, you must show your library card, and then the library will stamp your passport and give you another small gift.  

If you visit at least five participating libraries and return your passport to a participating library by May 7th, then you will be entered into one state-wide drawing for a chance to win a $150 Visa gift card for adults (18 and up) and a $100 Visa gift card for children (under 18). This is a state-wide contest where four winners will be selected: one adult and one child from a random drawing from all who visited at least five libraries, and one adult and one child from a random drawing from all who visited the most libraries.

For more details and a full list of participating libraries, ask your local librarian.
