If the stock market leaves you stumped or your credit cards are in chaos from debt, visit the Business Library tomorrow. At Financial Empowerment Day anyone can stop by and learn more about how to make their money work for them. Even better, we’ll have experts on hand to help answer questions and one-one-one sessions scheduled throughout the day (those fill up fast, so come early!)

We’ve decided to liven things up for this week’s flashback Friday and have a little stereogranimation via NYPL’s stereogranimator. Today’s image shows men and women hard at work making paper money at the Treasury (circa turn of the 20th Century)

Between 11-6, you can take charge of your own money and learn from the experts at NYPL’s semi-annual Financial Empowerment Day. You may not be able to make your own money, but you can learn more about how to make it work for you.
