Money Matters Workshop Series Returns to Central Library Beginning October 18
The Birmingham Public Library is partnering again this year with UAB’s Regions Institute for Financial Education to offer a series of Money Matters workshops to be held each month at our Central location. Each of the workshops covers a different topic, but all are designed to help you gain a better understanding of your personal finances and begin making a plan for the future.
The first Money Matters workshop, "Wise Use of Credit," is scheduled for Wednesday October 18, 2017, from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. All workshops will be held in the Youth Department’s Story Castle, which is located on 2nd floor of the Central Library. Representatives from the Regions Institute for Financial Education in UAB’s Collat School of Business will serve as instructors for each of the workshops.
