    North Brookfield Savings Bank knows the important of setting a strong foundation of financial knowledge and how starting that foundation from a young age can increase a person’s overall lifetime financial success. That is why it has always been their mission to provide financial education resources to the youth of their local communities through their Financial Literacy Programs and School Banking programs.
    North Brookfield Savings Bank, in conjunction with the Palmer Public Library and Top Floor Learning, Inc., is inviting all teens and parents to attend a FREE 5-week Financial Literacy for Teen & Parents program which will take place for 5 consecutive Tuesdays, from 4:30-5:30PM, beginning January 7th in the Palmer Public Library Community Room.
