On September 23rd, 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.
Sometimes, if you’re offering programs on money topics, library patrons may come to you with questions about setting money goals. To assist librarians, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the Institute of Museum and Library Services are developing financial education tools and sharing best practices with the public library field.
The two agencies created the partnership to help libraries provide free, unbiased financial information and referrals in their communities, build local partnerships and promote libraries as community resources. As part of the partnership, both agencies gathered information about libraries and financial education. Their surveys focused on attitudes about financial education, and how librarians can facilitate more financial education programs.
Join both groups on Tuesday, September 23, 2014, from 2:30—3:30p.m. Eastern Time for the free webinar “Setting money goals,” which will explore the basics of money management. The webinar will teach participants how to show patrons to create effective money goals.
