When you think of libraries, literacy is probably not far from your minds. But how about financial literacy? Libraries are the perfect place to find out more about your money—from books, to magazines, to e-resources. And this spring, the Carleton Place Public Library is pleased to offer a variety of financial literacy events, aimed at all aspects of finance.
First up is a session called Market Volatility, offered on Thursday, April 12 at 2pm. We’ll explore things you need to consider when venturing into the stock market.
Next, we’ll host The ABC’s of Insurance on Saturday, May 19th at 10:30am. This seminar aims to remove confusion about insurance and will show you how insurance should fit into your overall financial strategy.
And finally, Simple Budgeting for Beginners on Saturday, June 9th at 11:30am. Learn how to develop a budget, identify financial goals, understand the balance between spending, saving, and borrowing, and the importance of having a strategy. This would be perfect for teens going off to college, for students who have just graduated, or anyone who has never been able to budget well.
All of our sessions are brought to you by Nataliya Tyagley, who is a financial advisor. While she can’t give you personal financial advice, she’s able to offer up general guides to help everyone get the most out of their money.
Please call to register at 257-2702, or for more information. Sessions are free, but will fill up quickly.
