Money Smart Week® is a public awareness campaign designed to help consumers better manage their personal finances. Organizations come together once a year to stress the importance of financial literacy, inform consumers about where they can get help and provide free educational seminars and activities throughout the week. Programming is offered to all demographics and income levels and covers all facets of personal finance from establishing a budget to first time home buying to estate planning.
On Thursday April 25, the GFJ Library will
present two free programs:

There will be time for questions and answers at the end of the session.
