Money Management, Travel, and Teacups

Whether you want to help a child learn about money, virtually travel to Cuba, or make a candle in a teacup, join us for a Fresh City Life My Branch program this week!!

Adult program selections this week include:

At the Ross Cherry Creek Branch on Saturday, April 16 at 11:00 a.m., join Edward Jones financial advisor Paul Stratton, AAMS, for A Piggy Bank is Just the First Step: How to Raise a Money-Smart Child. In this free seminar, you'll learn how to start teaching your child or grandchild about financial goal-setting, self-discipline, and the basics of making money wise choices. Help a child in your life with skills they will use throughout their lifetime. Find more books about kids & finances in the DPL catalog.

Curious about what it's like to travel to Cuba? You can go there via slide show at the Ross University Hills Branch on Saturday, April 16 at 2:00 p.m. Margaret Donovan will talk about her Road Scholar trip to Cuba in 2009, in which she helped deliver much needed medical supplies and learned about life in Cuba. Pictures include sights in Havana, Cienfuegos, Trinidad, and the countryside. Planning your own trip? Check your library's travel section!

Need an idea for a unique Mother's Day gift, or just want to give yourself a treat? Make a teacup candle! This simple craft involves pouring simple paraffin-based candles into charming teacups found in any thrift store. Bring your own teacup (chips ok!), or we'll have a selection for you to choose from. Sunday, April 17 at 2:00 p.m. at the Schlessman Family Branch.
