Is one of your New Year’s Resolutions to get your finances in order? You’re not alone: about one-third of us make a financial resolution, whether it’s paying off debt, starting an emergency fund, or just spending less. All of those are excellent short-term goals, but what about a little further down the road, like retirement or long-term care?
Join us at the library on Wednesday, January 31st at 7 p.m. for a free program: Equalizing the Costs of Long-Term Care. According to financial experts, 70% of people turning age 65 will need some form of long-term care. Financial planner Adri J. Blier will discuss options of long-term care and strategies to help offset the costs. No matter your age, it’s never too soon to think about and plan for the future. This program is for adults ages 18 and up; to register, click here.
Whether your financial goals include planning for long-term care, retirement, or you just want to have better control of your money, the library’s catalog has resources to help. Here are just a few of the books that we have to offer:
