MORE MONEY@YOUR LIBRARY® A CHILDREN AND TEEN FINANCIAL LITERACY PROGRAM AT THE HOUSTON PUBLIC LIBRARY


BY Alex Wang [ April 02, 2011 at 13:05:19 ]

Money is important to children and teens too, but how they mange that money should also be important. Teaching children and teens at an early age on how to manage their money more effectively may help them become financially successful as adults. During the month of April 2011 the Houston Public Library’s More Money @your library® program will be offering diverse financial literacy classes for adults, children, and teens. Kids and teens will learn about budgeting, savings, banking and checking basics, identity theft, and much more. For teens thinking about going to college, there will be an informative program presented by representatives from the Financial Aid Office of Houston Community College. These representatives will offer critical tips on seeking and securing financial aid for college and will also benefit parents of students seeking funding for their child’s education. Classes will be presented by volunteers from various organizations. These classes are free and open to the public. For more details visit www.houstonlibrary.org or call 832-393-1313

Adults will have the opportunity to attend several diverse financial literacy classes. They will learn how to take the first steps to financial security. One class available is Money Matters, which will teach some of the basics on planning and following through on a personal budget. By the end of this course participants will be able to prepare a personal budget. To achieve this objective, the participants will be able to describe the concept of budgeting, recognize the benefits of budgeting, and use budgeting tools. For those wanting to start a business in Houston they can attend a class that will discuss business management and more.

For additional help with financial literacy, the Houston Public Library has created a great space on its website which includes suggested reading lists, books, periodicals and databases, class schedules, and links to other community resources. Also found here are self-guided education modules which are interactive, easy to use, and available in both Spanish and English. Visit www.houstonlibrary.org/moremoney to access these and other resources.

More $ Money @ Your Library has been funded by a Smart investing@ your library® grant through FINRA Investor Education Foundation and the American Library Association.
