1. Resolutions R Us

    Managing debt and saving money are two of the most popular New Year’s resolutions according to the US Government and NYPL is here to help you stay on the road to financial stability in 2012.

    Just a few of the programs offered throughout the library include:

    Budget - Key to improving your financial security is setting a budget and having financial goals. Visit our branches and learn the basics of financial planning.
