PRESCOTT – The Prescott/Nevada County Library is offering a course in financial literacy. We all want financial security. We all want to make enough money to support our lifestyles, raise and educate our children, save for a wonderful retirement, and have fun along the way. So to achieve it all, what will help you more, having a financial plan or a budget? The answer is both!

Budgeting? Financial planning? I don’t get it! Aren’t they the same thing?

Personal finance education begins with knowing how to plan. Learn strategies for categorizing your expenses, tracking your spending, and putting together a new budget.

This course is a great starting point for anyone who feels overwhelmed by all of the bills and paperwork standing between them and financial freedom. The class will teach you where to start, how to organize your spending, and what things you should prioritize when building your perfect budget.


  • Learn how to create and maintain a budget that works
  • Strengthen your consciousness about money – Become more proactive and less reactive
  • Discover the “Missing Link” –Find out why you have so little to show for all the money you make
  • Gaining mastery over your money – Be able to save more and spend less

Money Management

Someone once said, “To err is human; to blame the next guy is even more so.” Mistakes, rotten timing, problems, bad luck! It is so easy to blame someone or something else. It is especially easy to blame someone else when we don’t have enough money to do what we want. Our job, our partner, our parents, our government, or our children at one time or another may have been on our “Top Ten to Blame” lists for being broke. Enough of that…The blame game is over.  With these budgeting and money management tools, you’ll soon be in charge.
The course sets you free from blame by teaching how to take control of your finances and those internal thoughts and emotions that can prevent you from being in control of your cash.
