Do you believe you’re financially healthy? If the answer is no, well then you’re in luck, because April is financial literacy month.
According to Mary Donohue, FM’s library director, “ financial literacy is managing money to pay for what you need and saving for what you want.”
“$tep Up to $mart Money” is a program provided by the Evans library at FM, which supplies financial literacy resources and expertise to the Fulton and Montgomery county communities.
The program consists of activities, presentations and online content that will help you understand your finances not only for college, but also for your entire lifetime.
Donohue advises students to be aware of their finances and they “Do not get caught up in the simplicity of credit card spending.”
The program is made possible by a grant from the “Financial Industry Regulatory Authority Investor Education Foundation” through “Smart Investing @ Your Library”, a partnership with the American Library Association.
