The “Smart investing @ your library®” program is under way in 25 rural libraries throughout Iowa. It promotes investor education resources and programming and is a collaboration of the State Library of Iowa, the Ames Public Library and Iowa State University Extension.
The libraries are hosting courses that combine face-to-face and online learning taught by ISU Extension family resource management program specialists. The information is tailored to first-time investors, those preparing for retirement and retirees. The courses encourage participants to learn more and then take action.
