It is never too early to start talking about money. In fact, research indicates that children often form their financial habits as early as 7 years of age. So, children and teens would benefit from financial education early in their lives. Just like adults, having this education available in their libraries will benefit these young people. However, it can be challenging to know how to begin or continue developing library collections and programs in support of children’s and teen financial literacy.
During the “Developing Financial Literacy in the Next Generation: Resources for Children and Teens” webinar scheduled for Monday, July 29, 2019 @ 1:00pm Central, Scott Wolla and Mary Suiter from the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis will provide their expert assistance by sharing the wealth of resources available in the Federal Reserve’s collection of financial education materials. From book lists to activities for youth of all ages, the Federal Reserve offers a wide range of helpful resources to support and inspire library financial literacy initiatives. The webinar will also include time for participants to ask these experts their questions.
Any librarian interested in financial literacy programming would find this webinar helpful, particularly those supporting children and teens. The content will provide helpful resources related to collections and programming.
By the end of this webinar, the participant will be be able:
- Discuss the importance of financial literacy for children and teens
- Recognize opportunities to begin, improve, or expand financial literacy collections and programs for children and teens
- Locate Federal Reserve financial education resources appropriate for children and teens
This webinar is offered complimentary, thanks to the generous sponsorship of FINRA Investor Education Foundation and is also sponsored by the RUSA Financial Literacy Interest Group.
