Money Smart Week @ Your Library, April 21 - 28, 2012

Wed, 12/14/2011 - 10:03am -- CGoldstein

Rhode Island libraries of all types are encouraged to offer a financial literacy program during the week of April 21 - 28, 2012. RILA would love to help any RI library promote these programs via the RILA website, the RILA  Facebook page, and by making the Money Smart Week promotional graphics available to your library. For more information, or to have your program publicized, please email president@rilibraries.org.

The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago and the American Library Association developed Money Smart Week @ your library to promote personal financial literacy. Over 30 states participated in 2011 and this year the Rhode Island Library Association is bringing the program to RI libraries around the state. For more information, please visit the Money Smart Week website.
