Birmingham Public Library to Participate in 2015 Alabama Money Expo


The second annual Alabama Money Expo will be held on Saturday, March 7, 2015, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., at Carver High School, and the Birmingham Public Library (BPL) is set to be an active participant.

Consisting of a variety of exhibits, workshops, and presentations, the expo will provide attendees with a wealth of opportunities to learn more about personal finance and money management. Among the topics to be covered on Saturday are housing options and home ownership, budgeting and savings, credit repair, investing, estate planning, retirement, paying for college, and starting a small business. Perhaps most exciting is the chance for participants to take part in one-on-one counseling sessions with experts and knowledgeable specialists who can address specific concerns related to individual financial matters.

BPL will be one of many exhibitors on hand to share information and showcase their educational resources. Staff members from the library’s Business, Science and Technology Department will have plenty of handouts available that highlight the myriad of books, databases, and programs that BPL has to offer the community on the topics addressed at the expo. A demonstration on how to navigate some of the best of these business and financial databases is scheduled for 12:30 p.m. in the Main Exhibit Hall.

The 2015 Alabama Money Expo is free to the public and everyone is encouraged to attend, but pre-registration  is encouraged. Signups for appointment times for the one-on-one counseling sessions are required.
