The Fargo Public Library, with help from a $53,000 grant, has been trying to smarten up seniors and students when it comes to money. Now, it’s beginning a series of classes geared at New Americans.
The Money Smart Sessions for New Americans start Saturday, Oct. 2. Sessions will be geared to the Bhutanese, Liberian, Somali and Burundi populations.
Other classes have been held for senior citizens. Online videos are geared toward students. Beth Postema, deputy library director, says the library is an unbiased source of information on finances.
