DASH for the STASH!

Now in its fourth year, the DASH for the STASH is a multi-State investor education and protection program and poster contest that arms investors with the unbiased and non-commercial information they need to make crucial investing decisions. The 2017 DASH for the STASH program runs from April 1 to October 31, 2017. The program is a partnership between the Investor Protection Institute (IPI) and participating State Securities Offices. To play, participants visit a participating location, read the content on each poster, scan the unique QR code to access that topic’s quiz question, and submit their answer via smartphone, tablet, laptop computer, or public computer available at the participating location. Each poster is rich in investor education and protection content and each takes approximately 5-10 minutes to read. One winner in each participating State will be chosen in a random drawing of eligible participants who logged the correct answer for all four posters. The winner will receive a $1,000 contribution to a new or existing Individual Retirement Account (IRA) for 2017.

1000 Books Before Kindergarten

1000 Books Before Kindergarten

Do you have a child that enjoys reading and listening to stories?

If you do, 1000 Books Before Kindergarten is a great program to start with your child. It’s simple. Just read a book to your newborn, infant, and/or toddler. The goal is to have read 1,000 books (yes you can repeat books) before your precocious one starts kindergarten. Once each child has read a certain amount of books, the child will receive a coloring page and a sticker. To join the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program, please come in to the Muhlenberg Community Library and register at the circulation desk. The best part is, it’s free!
