Library-Based Coworking Office Space Gains Momentum

SCOTTSDALE, AZ – The Alexandria Coworking Network is beating an expansion path across the state’s library system. The network, which targets entrepreneurs and innovators, is opening two new coworking office space facilities where members can connect, collaborate and tap into resources from Arizona State University (ASU)

With its innovative model, Alexandria Coworking Network is bringing together inventors, problem-solvers, entrepreneurs and small businesses in collaboration spaces in public libraries across the state. The alternative workspace, which is finding early success, is designed to provide support for Arizona’s innovation economy.

Here’s how it works: The Alexandria Coworking Network’s collaboration spaces combine elements of coworking spaces with expert library fact-finding services and ASU startup resources in one place. The collaboration spaces are free and open to the public during normal library hours.

“The Alexandria Coworking Network leverages the many entrepreneurship resources of ASU to support innovators outside of the traditional startup spaces in Arizona,” says Gordon McConnell, assistant vice president of Innovation and Entrepreneurship in the Office of Knowledge Enterprise Development at ASU. “Our vision is to continue expanding the network to provide vital startup support to communities throughout Arizona and eventually further afield.”

The first office space was opened at the Scottsdale Public Library’s Civic Center Library in May. The next two coworking facilities will serve Goodyear and Mesa. The Goodyear collaboration space will set up shop in the city’s new library. The Mesa Public Library will also open collaboration space at its Red Mountain Branch.

Meanwhile, ASU is in talks with the City of Phoenix to bring the Alexandria Coworking Network to the Burton Barr Central Library in Downtown Phoenix, as well as the Tempe Public Library, which is in discussions with ASU about joining the network. Each library will create its own collaboration space designed to meet the unique needs of the community it serves.
