Library workshops set on financial literacy



Vancouver — Vancouver Community Library will offer a series of personal financial workshops this month to mark national Financial Literacy Month.

The series was inspired by Money Smart Week, developed 11 years ago by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago and its partner organizations.

The American Library Association, including Fort Vancouver Regional Library, joined the effort in 2011.

All of the events are free, open to the public and held at Vancouver Community Library, 901 C St.
