Libraries at the Ready: Helping Patrons Find the Right Financial Tools and Resources


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!

When: Friday, June 21 / 9:30 am-12 pm
