Sinclairville sets library programs

SINCLAIRVILLE — The Sinclairville Free Library will kick off a new session of financial literacy book club on Saturday in person at noon.

Participants will need a library card to check out a copy of The 30-Day Money Cleanse: Take Control of Your Finances, Manage Your Spending, and De-Stress Your Money For Good by Ashley Feinstein Gerstley, and will receive a free Budget Book to begin charting a new financial journey.

This event will be followed by four weeks of a virtual discussion group on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. The link to these meetings will be provided to all registered participants. Funds for these books and Budget Books were provided through an Adult Literacy Outreach Grant through the Chautauqua-Cattaraugus Library System. Reading and discussing the book together is designed to create a healthy money mindset that will help eliminate financial stress, form a positive money habit, and align your finances with your values. Let’s do a re-set and be ready for the challenges ahead, especially with holidays rapidly approaching.

To register for this program or for more information, please call the library at 716.962.5885 or send email to info@sinclairvillelibrary.org. Additional information about library programs is available on the library’s website at sinclairvillelibrary.org. Like its page on Facebook for updates.
