Virtual Discussion Forum Wed. April 26

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.
