It's never too soon to help kids learn how to make smart financial choices. A display coming to the Library is a great way to start the conversation!

Thinking Money for Kids is a museum-quality exhibition that is traveling to 50 U.S. public libraries – including Schaumburg from Feb. 10 - March 23 in the Central Library's KidsZone.

The goal is to teach children ages 7-11 and their parents, caregivers and educators about financial literacy topics – like saving, spending and budgeting – in a way that is not only understandable, but fun.

Through a bustling community market-themed storyline, digital interactive content and other hands-on activities, the exhibition explores:

  • What is money?
  • How do we earn money?
  • Saving and spending
  • Money values such as fairness and charitableness
  • Making responsible financial decisions

Thinking Money for Kids is brought to communities nationwide by the FINRA Investor Education Foundation and the American Library Association (ALA) Public Programs Office.
