Unlike the banking services many of us remember as children, the banking services offered to corporate accounts today can be of use to libraries as they streamline operations, negotiate for cost savings, and budget for both day‐to‐day operations and service to patrons. The modern bank has the ability to function as a financial partner in the successful operation of a library. While all the services they provide may not suit every library, the brief list of services included here should encourage most library managers to investigate the many options offered by their local financial institutions.
