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.
