Using Your Library for Financial Goals

Monday, May 9, 2022


I love my local library and I feel like it's something people forget about.  You literally have a free building full of books and knowledge and other resources.  So I figured to make it sound even more enticing, I'd explain the financial benefits of using a library, which can help you meet your financial goals.

You can use the materials inside the library to help you learn more about money...WITHOUT spending any.  You can borrow the books physically, through an e-reader, and if there's resources you'd like to read about online, you can use their computers to look things up. 

If you need a job and are struggling with beefing up your resume, many libraries offer free classes on things like that.  There are free workshops and even little free seminars and small job fairs.  Check out the offerings in the next month or so for your closest library. 

Some people need to be able to get out of their houses to do certain things.  If you are struggling to sit down and come up with a game plan for something with your finances, head to the library.  It's quieter than a coffee shop in most cases but you'll be able to sit down and focus with virtually NO interruptions, not even a doorbell! 

There are actually some really great networking opportunities at libraries.  Sometimes by volunteering you can branch out in so many ways but also just simply attending fun events or trivia nights. You'll get to know the people in your community and hopefully get a few leads.
Don't forget to take advantage of your local library!
