PARTNER CORNER
Financial Planning Association of Silicon Valley  
  Redwood City Public Li brary is proud to partner with Financial Planning Association of Silicon Valley (FPASV) to bring financial literacy programs to Redwood City.  
 
FPASV members assist members of our community by providing complimentary one-on-one financial planning appointments with Certified Financial Plannerâ„¢ Professionals.  Everyone needs a financial plan, whether for learning how to open a bank account, saving money for a child's education, recovering from a disaster, or preparing for retirement.   
 
At our second annual Financial Planning Day, 100% of the participants gave us very positive feedback, and with help from a local translator, we were able to provide service to Spanish speakers. Many commented on the value of the lack of bias in advising and the value of Pro Bono services. Others specifically traveled far from larger community events to experience the personal service and hospitality Redwood City offers.
 
Look for more educational events from the library and FPASV next year!
