Libraries and Money Smart Week, April 23-30, 2016


There is still time for your library to sign-up and join the 1,000 other libraries across the country that will be providing

financial education programming during Money Smart Week<http://www.moneysmartweek.org/>.

Money Smart Week is a partnership between ALA, the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, and other national partners such as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and hundreds of libraries, big and small, of all types.

To participate your library only need to provide one program during the week. There are lots of easy programs to create, such as money focused story times, creating a display of financial resources your library has, or you can participate in some of the national activities such as Geocashe<http://www.moneysmartweekpartners.org/geocache> for academic libraries.

And thanks to the CFPB<http://promotions.usa.gov/cfpblibraries.html> you can order, for free, posters-booksmarks-fliers and other materials to help you promote.  You can also order great resources to provide during Money Smart Week.

If you have any questions about participating please contact Don Wood at ala.org<mailto:Wood at ala.org>
