Do you struggle when you get a huge car repair bill? Is it difficult to find funds to pay for a sudden illness in the family?

Join the Library and the Credit Counselling Society to learn about the 3 biggest budget breakers (the little expenses, the irregular expenses, and the emergency expenses) and strategies to eliminate them from everyday worry.

Gain skills you probably didn't learn in school, but will use for the rest of your life!

This interactive and fun workshop is 90 minutes! We take a "grab and go" approach - grab an idea or two and go try it. All participants will walk away with ideas and resources.
