From the Director

The Library has received a grant from Capital One Bank to participate in their Financial Literacy Challenge and to develop financial education programs and materials to support their theme of Investing for Good. Grants were awarded to 25 Long Island organizations (we were one of 4 libraries) through a competitive application process.The goal of the grant is to encourage best practices in money management among children, teens and adults.

In the September/October First R newsletter you will find programs for all ages that focus on managing, investing, and learning about handling your money! Come to the Library and find materials about money management to borrow and to keep . Stay to play the money management games on our computers.

By September 1st you can check out our new Your Money Matters blog from our web page at

Programming will continue throughout the year. Be sure to take advantage of it.
