Become Money Smart!
Money Smart Week will take place this year April 5-12, 2014. As Maine's Money Smart Week co-chairs we encourage all Maine Libraries to get involved!
"Money Smart Week @ your library," is a national initiative in its fourth 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.
In 2013, 500 public, academic, school, and even prison libraries in 47
states participated. Last year there were 20 programs right here in Maine! The following link is a list of what Maine libraries reported as their most successful Money Smart Week programs last year- along with contact information for the person who organized the program. So...if you are interested in creating financial programming at your library, feel free to reach out:
