Struggling with student loan debt? You’re not alone.
If you don’t know how to deal with your debt, get advice from an expert during Money Smart Week at Mentor Public Library.
You can learn how to manage student loan debt at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 27, at our Main Branch.
Financial adviser Michael Kostelnik will suggest different payment strategies, as well as tips and goals to help you manage your debt and get out from under it faster.
By the way, the library is hosting several programs next week to help you learn more about taxes, saving for retirement and, in general, making smart financial decisions.
Those programs include:
- Couponing 101 with Rachel Krych at 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 22, at our Main Branch. Krych is a stay-at-home mom turned couponer and weekly columnist for The Medina Gazette. She will share her expertise during a 2-part class where you can learn the basics and start saving right away.
- Retirement savings and tax tips with financial adviser, Stan Lipinski. Our Lake Branch will host two sessions with Lipinski. The first session will be 6:30 p.m. on Monday, April 24. The second will be 1 p.m. on Friday, April 28.
- Money smarts for kids at 7 p.m. on Monday, April 24, at our Main Branch. Kids from four to eight years old can learn about spending and saving, while decorating their own bank that they’ll take home with them.
- a special tax edition of Mythbusters at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 25, at our Main Branch. Certified Public Accountant Andrea Lograsso will discuss common tax issues that many of us face and some ways to save money next year.
- Estate planning basics at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 26, at our Main Branch. Joseph L. Motta from The Society For Financial Awareness will talk about wills and trusts, protecting inheritances from creditors, and how to avoid probate court.
