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.
