Your library could participate by offering programs on basic budgeting, managing student debt, retirement planning, home purchasing, saving money through couponing, and how to prevent identity theft.
Here are ways you can get ready:
- Attend the free Get Ready for Money Smart Week 2017 webinar at 11am on October 14
- Get ideas from this Excel spreadsheet of popular public library programs
- Order free financial education materials from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau that you can share with patrons or use in your presentations
- Watch the Step-by-Step Video Guides, including Step By Step Partner Registration Video, Step By Step Lost Password Recovery Video, and Step By Step Guide to Adding Events Video
- Get details at the Money Smart Week website of the Federal Reserve Bank
- Re-pin pins from the CFPB's Money Smart Week Pinterest board
Financial literacy is important to all communities, and libraries can be part of the solution.
Money Smart Week is a partnership between ALA and the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, through which libraries of all types provide financial literacy programming for all stages of life.
