Fuller Economic Development Center

Welcome to the Longview Public Library Fuller Economic Development Center (FEDC) where we support employment education and small business success. The FEDC is located on the main floor of the Library, the alcove beside the main door staircase where we have a variety of resources including:

Education and Employment

Small Business

We hope to continue our outreach to small business owners with the resources and materials that we have to help you succeed. If you are a Longview business owner or property owner, but aren't a resident of Longview or the Cowlitz County Partial-County Rural Library District, you can get a Longview Library card at no additional cost.
