Money Smart Week
Become Money Smart!
Participate in 'Money Smart Week @ your library,' a national initiative in its third year between the ALA and the Federal Reserve Bank (Chicago) to provide financial literacy programming to help members of your community better manage their personal finances.
Libraries of all types can and do participate, providing programming for all ages and all stages of life on topics such as: basic budgeting; managing student debt; retirement planning; home purchasing; saving money through couponing; and how to prevent identity theft.
Last year public, academic, school, and even prison libraries in 39 states participated. So mark your calendars to participate April 20-27, 2013!
