Increase Your Financial Intelligence during Money Smart Week 2017

April is Financial Literacy Month, and unfortunately studies show how poorly-informed Americans are when it comes to managing their money.

In 2002, the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago created Money Smart Week, a public awareness and educational campaign to help consumers better manage their personal finances. With the collaboration and coordinated efforts of many organizations (including businesses, financial institutions, schools, libraries, not-for-profits, government agencies and the media), it sponsors classes and seminars throughout the Chicago area. Programs cover all facets of personal finance, such as saving money, using credit wisely, saving for college, managing student debt and financing retirement.

Naperville Public Library has been a Money Smart Week partner for more than five years. This year the Library will be hosting four programs on April 24 through April 27:

Making the Most of Social Security will be presented in the NaperLaunch facility at Nichols Library on Monday, April 24 from 6:30-8:30 pm. Click here for more information.
