Money Matters: Teaching Financial Literacy Skills

Wednesday, September 15, 10:00am EDT.

Financial literacy is one of the 21st century library competencies outlined in the recent IMLS 21st Century Museum and Libraries. The Athens-Clarke County Library has launched a grant-funded program "Money Matters: Because Your Future Matters" aimed at helping GED students and others learn basic financial skills.

Join Trudi and Teri to learn more about this grant-funded, innovative and timely program. Come away with a clear idea of the benefit of such programming as well as ideas for incorporating parts of this unique program into your library's programming efforts using your own local resources. You'll even learn something about the newest credit rules!
