In difficult economic times, getting "Money Smart" is more important than ever. Each April, the FDIC sponsors free financial education events around Houston with a goal of helping consumers learn about savings and money management on any number of topics.
Join us at any of the events at Harris County Public Library branches listed below. In the meantime, learn about other Money Week (April 2-9) speakers and events around Houston at http://www.moneyweekhouston.com/ .
