Money Talks - Managing Credit and Debt

Monday, April 20, 2015 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm

Spring is the perfect time for renewal and it’s also a great time to look at renewing the way we look at our personal finances.  Lethbridge Public Library and Servus Credit Union will be presenting a series of free noon hour sessions entitled ‘Money Talks.'  The idea for this series came about as a result of a discussion about making wise money choices – how we spend it and how we save it and how we might make amazing choices if we had input and ideas (money expertise) from professionals and ultimately the difference that could make.

Money moves our world whether we are just starting out or looking at retirement options.   Developing money skills often begins with having some of our questions answered and so the Library which is all about lifelong learning when it comes to skills and knowledge seems the perfect fit as a place for people to meet and to begin to talk about money.  Financial literacy involves decision making about purchases, saving, investing and dare we say it – learning how to budget.  What if you could learn some powerful money moves and discover some fun ways to immediately impact your finances?
