Financial Fitness

Due to inclement weather, the Tuesday, February 26 session has been cancelled.

If your 2013 resolutions include getting your personal finances organized and planning for your financial future, we can help! We are thrilled to once again offer a free series of eight Financial Wellness Clinics, made possible through Smart Investing @ Your Library,® a partnership between the American Library Association and the FINRA Investor Education Foundation.

These clinics are free of charge and free childcare is provided as well. Because of our temporary relocation, the 2013 clinics will be held in the Douglas County Senior Center. You can register for individual clinics or the entire series by calling 785-843-3833, ext. 113 or emailing
