[ARCHIVED] Improving Financial Literacy @ Your Library

Are you interested in learning more about how to make the most of your finances during retirement? Kearney Public Library has resources to help you find answers. We offer books, DVDs, magazines, and online resources to help you make better decisions about your money.

During the months of February and March the Library will be offering a course on financial education targeted at those planning for or in retirement. Take advantage of free, unbiased resources and sign up for our 4 week online curriculum to help you make better decisions about your money and make it last through retirement. The training will kick off with a special event on Tuesday, February 3 at 2:00 p.m. The following four weeks will consist of participants completing the online curriculum in the Library or at home.

Pre-registration is required for this program and will be available through February 6. For more information, or to sign up, please call the Library at (308) 233-3283 or e-mail

Kearney Public Library and the UNL Cooperative Extension are partnering to bring you free resources designed especially to help you better manage money, credit, investments, and debt; plan for retirement; learn to avoid identity theft; protect your privacy; and steer clear of financial scams and fraud.

This financial education effort is supported in part by a grant from Smart investing @ your library, a partnership between the American Library Association and the FINRA Investor Education Foundation. The “Smart Investing @ your library Builds Nebraska Communities” program is coordinated in Nebraska by the Nebraska Library Commission and the Northeast Library System. Kearney Public Library is excited to partner with these organizations to bring you the information you need to make well informed decisions for your financial future.
