Mentor Public Library hosts financial programs in April

Mentor Public Library is hosting a trio of programs to help people make sense of their pennies this April.

They will cover topics such as preparing for retirement and common financial mistakes, according to a press release.

First, Lea May Majer of PFS Investments will explain what retirement preparations are necessary at each stage of life. She will discuss mutual funds, types of accounts, interest rates, the time value of money and how to maintain a plan with monthly contributions during a program at 6 p.m. April, at the Main Library Branch, 8215 Mentor Ave.

Next, Michael Zawatsky from the Society for Financial Awareness will share the 25 biggest money mistakes people make and how to avoid them. His talk will take place at 6 p.m. on April 7, also at the main branch.

Finally, children ages 4 to 8 can learn about saving and spending as part of the Money Smart for Kids program, which combines fun and financial savvy at 7 p.m., April 11, at the main branch.

Each child will receive a piggy bank and can “buy” supplies to decorate it, but they will have to respect their budget. Children will also play games that will help them learn basic financial literacy skills.

All of these programs are free, but registration is required. People can RSVP at www.mentorpl.org or by calling the library at 440-255-8811.
