Developing Financial Literacy in the Next Generation: Resources for Children and Teens
July 29 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
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.
At this webinar, 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.
