The Library also announced that on Saturday, June 21, at the Midtown Carnegie Branch Library, at 1:30 p.m. Jeff Yeager will present the program "Ultimate Cheapskate." Yeager, best know from the NBC "Today Show" and "Extreme Cheapstakes" on TLC, will base his talk on his best-selling book, "The Ultimate Cheapskate's Road Map to True Riches: A Practical (and Fun) Guide to Enjoying Life More by Spending Less."
