Libraries Host Free Financial Programs
(Chicago Sun Times) — It’s the new year, and for many savvy Chicagoans, it’s time to make financial resolutions. To help, the Federal Reserve has teamed up with the Chicago Public Library to offer Money Smart programs at local library branches. Each month the program focuses on a different monetary topic. This month’s themes are: strategies for paying for college; filing your federal income tax, and bankruptcy and foreclosure advice. The Money Smart programs are designed to help people of all ages learn to become more “money smart” by helping class attendees gain control of their finances and learn practical money skills for life. Money Smart programs are held year-round at selected library locations throughout the city.
