Get "Money Smart" for the month of April

Below you will find a complete list of Money Smart Week programs at various library locations.

Money Smart Week® is a public awareness campaign designed to help consumers better manage their personal finances. This is achieved through the collaboration and coordinated effort of hundreds of organizations across the country including businesses, financial institutions, schools, libraries, not-for-profits, government agencies and the media. These groups come together once a year to stress the importance of financial literacy, inform consumers about where they can get help and provide free educational seminars and activities throughout the week. Programming is offered to all demographics and income levels and covers all facets of personal finance from establishing a budget to first time home buying to estate planning

Money Smart Week 2018

In 2016, over 1000 public, academic, school, prison and other libraries amongst 48 states participated to better serve their communities in managing their personal finances.
