You Work Hard for It. Learn How To Make It Work For You: Houston Money Week @ HCPL

When someone says “money is power,” people tend to think of the kind of power only the very wealthy can wield, but that old saw applies to people like you and me just as well. No matter how little we have, the better we handle our finances the greater our ability to do the things we want and need to do—whether that is putting a little aside much deserved vacation or putting our kids through college.

During the week of April 11 – 18, Harris County Public Library along with organizations across the area will participate in Houston Money Week, a financial education initiative sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas Houston Branch.
