Libraries Transform: Financial Literacy

My mother and father did a wonderful job of raising three children. They were involved, taught us manners, life skills and helped us become productive capable people. Or so they thought until my mother called me at college one day, screaming about how I could have bounced not one but two checks. It wasn’t that they didn’t try to teach me skills to manage money, I guess the lesson just didn’t take. Well, it sunk in pretty good that day. And although I have been able to keep a balanced check book ever since, there’s always something more to learn about managing money. Planning for retirement, planning for the kid’s college, buying a car, and mutual funds versus stocks can all get pretty confusing in a big hurry, which is why we are offering a series of programs to help you improve your financial literacy.
