Money Exhibit at Central Library

NEW – Thinking of Money Exhibit at Central Library

 

Now through March 15

Money affects all Americans, but many of us lack the knowledge we need to make smart financial choices that will prepare us for whatever the future brings. Thinking Money strives to teach tweens, teens and their parents, caregivers and educators about financial literacy topics—like saving, spending and avoiding fraud—in a way that is not only understandable, but fun. Thinking Money is a museum-quality traveling exhibition that is traveling to 50 U.S. public libraries between 2016 and 2018. (View a list of selected sites here.) Through an adventure-themed storyline, interactive iPad content and other fun, hands-on activities, the exhibition explores the following themes:

  • Wants versus Needs
  • Earning and paying interest
  • Preparing for rainy/sunny day
  • Imagining your future self
  • Avoiding financial fraud

Thinking Money was created by the FINRA Investor Education Foundation in partnership with the American Library Association (ALA) Public Programs Office.
