Money Smart Week comes to Georgetown County

  • Tuesday, April 1, 2014

The Georgetown County Library system is offering financial fitness workshops next week at all four library branches in honor of Money Smart Week. The classes - called “Lunch Money” - last one hour, and feature entertaining experts, helpful handouts, even lunch from Kudzu Bakery.

“Come get tips on reducing your debt, saving for the future, and making your money work for you,” said Public Service librarian Heather Pelham. “And after the workshop, if you’re looking for more details, we’ve got all the latest books on personal finance.”

The workshops are sponsored by a Smart investing@your library® grant provided through a partnership of the FINRA Investor Education Foundation and the American Library Association. The Smart Investing grant has made possible financial festivals, job fairs, workshops, even interviews with local residents who have faced financial obstacles and overcome them.

Money Smart Week is a national collaboration of libraries and nonprofit organizations who come together once a year to stress the importance of financial literacy, inform consumers about where they can get help and provide free seminars and activities. This year’s Money Smart Week runs from April 5 to 12.
