"Does the library have any basic resources on understanding the stock market, or helping me with my investments?"

answer: 

The library owns several books that explain the fundamental information that a new investor should understand, as well as the intricacies of specific investment tools. How Wall Street Works (or online) and The Standard & Poor's Guide for the New Investor are two examples. They cover the basics (e.g. What are stocks?

Introduction to Equity Markets  is another example of a basic investing guide.

Additional titles for basic financial market research include:
