2 Personal Finance Classes April 27 & April 30

As part of MoneySmart Week, the Library will hold a two special classes -- the first, Setting Financial Goals,  on Monday, April 27, at 6 p.m., and a second one, Squeeze That Dollar Till It Screams on Thursday, April 30.  Both classes will start at 6 p.m. in the Library's meeting room.

Representatives from Pinnacle Bank will present information on goal-setting, spending plans, expenses and income, planning tools and even how to get assistance on paying bills. 

Christa Campbell, Family and Consumer Science Agent with the Extension Service, will lead the Thursday class in a discussion covering inexpensive changes that can be made to improve your family's bottom line.

Financial literacy is a topic we all need to learn more about, so plan to join us for this informative session!  No reservations are needed, and as with all Library programs, there is no cost to attend.

Give the Library a call at 706-283-5375 if you have any questions.

Dept. of Labor Unemployment Assistance

The Library partners with the Georgia Department of Labor to provide unemployment assistance.  Every other Tuesday, a DOL representative is on-site from 10-3 to help with unemployment claims, questions, job searches and other matters provided by the DOL office in Athens. The scheduled dates for March and April are:  March 10 and 24; April 7 and 21.  

The DOL representative works with patrons on a first-come, first-served basis.  No appointments are accepted, nor can she accept phone calls during the time she is here.

Library staff can help with initial unemployment applications, resumes and job searches throughout the week as staffing levels permit, but there are some steps to the unemployment application process that must be completed by the DOL. To make sure staff is available to help with a resume or application, you might want to schedule an appointment first.

For more information, give us a call at 706-283-5375.
