Thinking Money Exhibit

Saturday, November 26, 2016
Spokane Valley

October 22–November 26, 2016  |  Spokane Valley Library

Money affects everyone, but many of us lack the knowledge we need to make smart financial choices that prepare us for whatever the future brings. Thinking Money is a traveling exhibition designed to teach tweens, teens, and the adults in their lives about financial literacy topics in a way that is understandable and fun. Through an adventure-themed storyline, interactive digital content, and other activities, the exhibition explores themes such as wants vs. needs, preparing for a rainy or sunny day, avoiding financial fraud, and imagining your future self.

 

To explore the many facets of our financial lives, the Spokane County Library District presents a selection of programs: from classes about college savings, planning, and financial aid, to workshops about senior planning for a secure financial future, and from courses on how to avoid identity theft and online fraud and scams, to workshops on understanding your credit score and strategies for wise buying.

 

The Spokane County Library District is partnering with Junior Achievement of Washington and North Pines Middle School for a Thinking Money After-School Program. Students attending the program learn economic principles in hands-on activities that cover topics such as personal finance, identifying education and career goals, and how international trade affects our daily lives. At the close of the program, students celebrate what they’ve learned and share their knowledge with their families and friends.

 

Thinking Money was developed by the American Library Association Public Programs Office in collaboration with the FINRA Investor Education Foundation, whose support made this exhibition possible.

Area schools and groups are invited to tour the Thinking Money exhibition. Tours are by appointment and can be scheduled by calling Spokane Valley Library at 509.893.8400 or by using the online request form at www.scld.org/thinking-money/tour-request
