Fulton Bank’s contribution provides financial literacy classes at libraries.

Lebanon Community Library, the District Center for Lebanon County Libraries, received a $3,500 contribution from Fulton Bank recently.  “We are pleased to partner with Fulton Bank’s team to present a variety of financial literacy classes at all six of our public libraries,” said Stephanie Williams, District Consultant.  All classes are presented to the public free of charge, utilizing curriculum established by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.  Fulton’s partnership with Lebanon County Libraries is part of the bank’s Fulton Forward initiative, the umbrella for its community development initiative.
