Personal Finance Magazines

Many of us have just filed our tax returns.  I’m sure many of you are like me and this is the time you vow to improve you financial status for next year.  If so, the library is a good place to go.  Do you know we subscribe to many magazines that can help?  Titles like “Consumer Reports Money Advisor”, “Kiplinger’s Personal Finance Magazine”, “Money”, and  “Smart Money” are available.  Also “Boston Consumers’ Checkbook” and “Consumer Reports” help you to get the best for your money.  Two newspaper subscriptions that we subscribe to and that you may find helpful are “Barron’s” and “Investors Business Daily”

Of course a large number of titles can be found in books, audiobooks and ebooks. Items in the library can be found under the nonfiction Dewey call number for personal finance which is 332.024.  As always, the Reference staff is available to assist you with any questions you may have.
