Become a smarter investor

Improve your money savvy and investing know-how through our Mind Your Money program for beginning investors. Our series of four Mind Your Money Lunch & Learn sessions begins Thursday, March 27, from noon to 1 p.m. at the Main Library downtown.

The four-part series focuses on such topics as savings plans, investment options, and assessing and managing risks. The series continues at the Main Library on April 3, 10, and 24 from noon to 1 p.m.  

The Madison Library will host Mind Your Money sessions at the Hogan Family YMCA in Madison on Mondays, April 28 and May 5, 12, and 19, from 11 a.m. to noon.

We’re also giving library cardholders access to Morningstar® Investment Research Center, which offers real-time access to comprehensive data and independent analysis on thousands of investments, spanning mutual funds, stocks, exchange-traded funds, and closed-end funds.

Mind Your Money is made possible by a grant from the FINRA Investor Education Foundation through Smart investing@your library®, a partnership with the American Library Association.
