Please join the hundreds of libraries across the country that will be providing financial literacy programming during Money Smart Week @ your library, April 20-27.
Libraries of all types can provide much needed financial education to their communities- pubic, school, academic, special. Last year over 250 libraries in 39 states participated. We are hoping to double the number of libraries this year, and have participation in each state.
ALA and the Federal Reserve Bank (Chicago) have partnered to make it easy for you to participate, with toolkits, great program ideas, guides, resources, downloadable logos and more. And we don’t ask you to do a lot, you can participate if you only provide one program during the week.
To learn more about ‘Money Smart Week @ your library’ and how other libraries have benefited from being part of Money Smart Week @ your library take a look at this recent archived webinar which you can view at your leisure (55 minutes).
Please feel free to pass the link to the webinar link to any colleagues who you would like to also encourage to participate.
If you and your library would like to participate we ask that should register as a 'Library Partner' at the Money Smart Week website - http://www.moneysmartweek.org/ala. Please register by January 2nd if possible.
And don’t forget to also sign up for the Money Smart Week @ your library discussion list, where we provide updates and you can ask questions of other participating librarians.
