Helping you reach the peaks of financial wisdom, by
making sense of budgeting & personal money management,
through trusted information from your local library

About This Site

This site will equip you with the information you need to start your path to personal financial security. Whether you need some basic principles to get you started, or are looking for the best personal finance books out there to deepen your knowledge, we can help.
For librarians interested in personal finance programming at their libraries, we've designed general and specialized workshops that we'd be happy to share. Contact us if you're interested, or have any questions.

  • A library is a hospital for the mind.

  • Here was one place where I could find out who I was and what I was going to become. And that was the public library.
