Library Story Times
One popular, fun, and effective way to introduce financial literacy concepts is through children’s literature. Starting this summer (June/July/August), we are looking to hold story times at local libraries. These will be approximately 30 minutes in length and will include a picture book with financial literacy themes and an activity. Additionally, children will be given a simple activity they can take home to do with their parents. Check back here to see times and dates!
