Strengthen Your Investments With Library Resources!

Some would have you think that the recession is over and that we're back to the boom times, while others are more cautious and think that there's still some rocky times ahead. Regardless of your outlook for the market, there's never a bad time to use a couple of good resources (compliments of your local library) to strengthen your investments.

Morningstar is one of the best online databases out there to get ratings, reviews, and other helpful resources to give you an edge on your investments--and you can use it compliments of the library! Soon (like next week soon) we'll be getting this set up for you to use at home, but in the meantime you can come in to the library to use it. That's okay, though, because if you stop by the library you can also check out our Investment Table, which is chock full of great print resources like Valueline ratings, newsletters, and other reports. If you'd like to see a full list of these resources, look no further than our Guide to Investment Resources located on our website.

A little overwhelmed by all this? Never fear, the librarian is here! I lead two classes about our resources: one is a thorough overview of the Morningstar database; the other is a quick tutorial on the database and highlights all our wonderful print resources--newsletters, ratings & reviews, guides, etc. This upcoming April 27th from 10-11am I'll be hosting the second class, which you can sign up for here, and you can always check the library's events calendar for further classes.
