When you least expect it: Help library patrons manage life’s financial twists and turns

On Tuesday, July 28, 2020 RUSA offered a complimentary webinar sponsored by the RUSA Financial Literacy Interest Group and the FINRA Investor Education Foundation.

As trusted community education partners, libraries play an important role in starting the conversation about life-changing events that are made easier through informed financial decisions and planning. A top notch panel made up of representatives from Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, FINRA Investor Education Foundation, United Way Worldwide and Pioneer Library System, shared reputable resources for helping your community manage the unexpected and be resilient in challenging circumstances, especially in times when patrons cannot physically visit the library.
