Free financial literacy webinar for librarians

Consumer Financial Protection Bureau

Consumer Financial Protection Bureau

On November 19th, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the Institute for Museum and Library Services will offer a free webinar on financial literacy. This session has limited space so please register quickly.

Tune in to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s monthly webinar series intended to instruct library staff on how to discuss financial education topics with their patrons. As part of the series, the Bureau invites experts from other government agencies and nonprofit organizations to speak about key topics of interest.

Tax time is a unique opportunity for many consumers to make financial decisions about how to use their income tax refunds to build savings. In next free webinar “Ways to save during tax time: EITC,” finance leaders will discuss what consumers need to do to prepare before filing their income tax returns, the importance of taking advantage of the tax time moment to save, and the ways people can save automatically when filing their returns.
