We have a special program for all of you trying to get your finances in order in the new year – a series of programs presented in partnership with Queensborough National Bank & Trust on budgeting and personal fi- nances. It’s a four-part series that will begin on Saturday, January 27, at 12:30 pm and will start with “Understanding Credit.” The experts from Queensborough will show you how to make use of your credit and how to avoid getting in over your head.

New at the library - “Higher is Waiting” by Tyler Perry. Tyler Perry wasn’t always the household name he is today: he started out as a shy boy in New Orleans living in terrible circumstances. Despite his rough start, he was surrounded by those who taught him integrity, trust in God, and the power of forgiveness.

Well, that’s all for now – see you at the library!
