Investing tools at your fingertips

By Maria Levetzow

Money Smart Week is April 21st-28th this year. This the perfect time for you to give your finances a tune-up and Bettendorf Public Library is here with tools to help.

On Thursday, April 26, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., AARP Iowa is sponsoring Shred Day!  Bring up to three standard file containers of personal papers (up to 100 pounds total) for secure shredding by The Shredders out of Des Moines to Faye's Field, 2850 Learning Campus Dr. Save time while you protect your identity. Documents will be shredded on site, but you will not be able to watch your specific documents be shredded.

For more financial information, your Bettendorf Library card gives you 24/7 access to online resources to help you make smart investment decisions. Whether you are new to investing, planning for retirement, or an experienced investor, Morningstar Investment Research Center and ValueLine, will give you the information you need to make the most of your investment dollar. Featuring reports on individual stocks and funds, economic analyses, they even provide tools to help you analyze your portfolio and to help you define retirement goals. These resources are free for Bettendorf patrons, another way we can help you be Money Smart!
