Jumpstart Your Finances at the Los Angeles Public Library

April is Financial Literacy Month and with Tax Day sneaking up on the 15th, there’s never been a better time to get your finances in shape. But does the topic of money make your head spin? Get free financial advice from one of the city’s most trusted institutions. Throughout this month the Los Angeles Public Library is offering “Money Matters,” a series of free events to guide you through financial planning. Teaching crucial money management skills that are no longer offered in schools, LAPL is eager to help all Angelenos relieve everyday stresses, find more success with their finances, and gain an overall positive impact on their lives.

The first event, “Financial Fitness Day,” kicks off this Saturday, April 6th at the Central Library with workshops on first time home buying, debt consolidation, credit management, college savings and more. You can even schedule an appointment for help with filing your taxes during the event by calling 323.909.1975. Listed below are other upcoming events in branches across the city, and be sure to check out The Language of Money Resource Guide, a great compilation of financial learning tools, books, databases, and useful websites.
