Financial Literacy Programming in Libraries Discussion
Wednesday, April 26 at 9 am Pacific/10 am Mountain/11 am Central/12 pm Eastern

How can you save patrons from the boredom of budgeting and the tedium of taxes? How do you make compound interest interesting? Financial literacy topics lack flash and library programs may not attract all who could benefit from this practical education. 

Join the RUSA Financial Literacy Interest Group for a virtual discussion forum on financial literacy programming ideas and marketing tactics to increase attendance and engagement. What are a couple of attention-grabbing financial literacy program names you've used or heard? What are some activities that have worked well or that you would like to try? Come ready to share and borrow ideas.

Many libraries of all types are involved or want to be involved in providing financial literacy programming, financial reference assistance, personal finance collections, and other library services and resources that support their users’ information needs for financial decision-making. This RUSA interest group is focused on sharing ideas and building a community around those already engaged in or interested in exploring the topic of financial literacy and libraries. 

Feel free to post questions and ideas related to financial literacy and libraries here.
