We’re so happy to be partnering with Bringing Back the Village and Putnam CREW to offer a series of Financial Foundations seminars and workshops in January on Tuesday evenings at 6pm. Geared toward teens and new adults, as well as those of us with a few more years under our belts, these sessions explain the foundations of personal finance. From credit to debt and all subjects in between, these experts are offering their expertise for FREE to help you get a grasp on how to grow your wealth and know exactly what to do with your dollars.

We hope you’ll join us at the Main Library in January. Share with anyone you know who wants a fresh financial start in the new year!
