The Cariboo Chilcotin Partners for Literacy is offering a series of courses on financial literacy throughout the months of January and February, starting Tuesday, Jan. 17 at 7 p.m. at the Cariboo Regional District Library, Williams Lake branch.

These free seminars are suited to anyone seeking to learn more about their financial state of affairs.

Do you find you are in a situation of juggling debts and bills, or do you question whether you are saving enough for the future? Does payday always seem to far away?

If you are struggling with any of those situations, or are just curious to learn more, these seminars will be of benefit to you.

Topics will include budgeting and money management, credit and debt management, income tax, home financing, financial planning, and smart consumerism.

The Williams Lake library will also be setting up a book display of financial literacy information available at the library.

This project is proudly supported by a grant from the TD Financial Literacy Grant Fund, says Kirsten Stark, the financial literacy project co-ordinator.
