Libraries have always been a place for the community to gain information about personal finance. However, since 2008, the rules have changed. What resources are up-to-date and which ones are still useful? Join us for an informative session with Karen Chan, a financial educator and Certified Financial Planner, to learn how to best work with patrons on financial issues and connect them to the resources they need.

Topics covered will include:

> Handy tools you can share with clients including how to compare loans to identifying assets
> Financial tips that will benefit you and your patrons
> Opportunities for libraries to become more involved in providing financial education opportunities to their communities
> Activities you can use with job clubs

All reference librarians and front line reference desk workers can benefit from this informative session!

Type:   Meeting

Sponsored by RLA-CE with funding from H.W. Wilson. Gale Cengage Learning and TBS.
