Know Money
The economy may be on the slow uptick, but people are still looking for ways to stretch—and make—a dollar.

Join us at Deschutes Public Library throughout January when we explore various ways that people can “Know Money.” From panning for gold to traveling on a budget, these programs will give the community diverse ways to see how far their dollar can go. All programs are free and open to the public.
