Increase your Money IQ

Logo for Money Smart Week.

This week is Money Smart Week, and Brookens Library is highlighting some of our resources on budgeting, investing and personal finances. 

Did you know that one in four Americans spends $11 or more on coffee every week? That adds up to $572 a year. Or that the average person spends more than 40 percent of their food budget on food away from home? Money Smart Week encourages us to look at our spending habits and reflect on the hidden costs of college, food and finances. 

There are a lot of resources out there so if you are interested in honing your skills so you can pay your bills, here are a few to get you started: 

  • Ask CFBP: Find clear, unbiased answers to hundreds of financial questions. 
  • Paying for College: Find guides that can help you make informed financial decisions about how to pay for college and repay student debt. 

Here are some books you can check out at Brookens Library:
