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, adults and educators about financial literacy topics such as saving, spending, and avoiding fraud in a way that is not only understandable, but fun.
Stop by Slover Library between July 7 and August 16 during normal operating hours to view the Thinking Money exhibit, and take part in special events.
Through an adventure-themed storyline, interactive iPad content and other fun, hands-on activities, the exhibition explores the following themes:
- Wants vs. needs
- Earning and paying interest
- Preparing for rainy/sunny day
- Imagining your future self
- Avoiding financial fraud
- Thinking money
Thinking Money was created by the FINRA Investor Education Foundation in partnership with the American Library Association (ALA) Public Programs Office.
