Personal Finance Education this Fall at NYPL
Recent opinion polling has revealed that consumer confidence in the United States economy has plummeted. However, an even more important question to ask is: how's your confidence in your own economy, that is, your personal finances? This Fall, The New York Public Library is offering a number of programs educating New Yorkers on how to take control of their finances.
Financial Planning Day @ SIBL will be held on October 6, 2011. A number of classes on investing and financial planning, as well as financial database demonstrations, will be given throughout the day. Free sessions with certified financial planners will also be available to those who come to the Science, Industry and Business Library on 188 Madison Avenue at 34th Street.
Furthermore, beginning this month, the five neighborhood libraries NYPL has designated as Financial Education Centers — the Bronx Library Center, George Bruce Library, Mott Haven Library, St. George Library Center, and Seward Park Library — will be hosting regular programs on personal finance education as part of the Library's Money Matters series
made possible by the generous support of the McGraw-Hill Companies' Financial Literacy Now Campaign.
During the preceding months, a number of titles were ordered focusing on the subject of personal finance in anticipation of the creation of the Financial Education Centers. Books on personal finance are generally found in call number 332.024 in many neighborhood libraries and have the subject heading: Finance, personal. Materials acquired especially for the Financial Education Centers have the word FINANCE on the call number label on the spine of each book and are located on dedicated shelving. Below is a sample of some of these titles.
