The American Library Association (ALA) is offering a free webinar titled Make it Money Smart Week @ Your Library Thursday, October 18, 2012 at 2:00 p.m.
Central Daylight Time. Learn how your library can be part of ‘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
21-27, 2013 and join the free webinar on October 18th to learn about how easy it is to
participate, programming ideas and tips from veterans and first-time
participants, and partnership opportunities.
