Free, Professional, Absolutely Nothing To Sell Classes At The Library

Is your household one of the over ninety percent of households that operates without a written spending plan? This Saturday, May 21, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., everyone is invited to a free class at the Lyons Regional Library to learn more about financial planning. Find out why sixty percent of millionaires still

do, and always have, used a written budget. This month’s topic is “Goal Setting & Financial Planning,” offered by Common Cents for Colorado. It is simple and clear: three tools, three tasks. It focuses on basic money management skills, like how to create and stay up to date with a written budget or spending plan, calculating your net worth (everyone has one!), and setting realistic savings goals. Handouts, worksheets, and lots of individual time to answer questions are included.

These programs were developed in Estes Park, and are now used state-wide by select libraries. Common Cents for Colorado is in partnership with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and the American Library Association (ALA). The Lyons Regional Library wrote a grant and was chosen as one of only thirteen libraries in Colorado to participate!

 The library is the perfect venue to learn about financial matters. Because library services are fee-free and open to everyone, they level the economic playing field. Common Cents and the Lyons Library offer resources and services that help people of all incomes learn how to make informed decisions about their finances.

For those who come to this month’s program, appointments will be available for private, one on one session with a financial planner. Saturday’s program is in two parts: the program is from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., with a question and answer session from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.
