Grant funds traveling money exhibition

Thanks to a grant, the Campbell County Public Library will host a new traveling exhibition, Thinking Money in December of 2017.

The American Library Association Public Programs Office, in partnership with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority Investor Education Foundation, has announced 50 public libraries, including CCPL, will host a new traveling exhibition, Thinking Money.

Money affects all Americans, but many of us lack the knowledge we need to make smart financial choices that will prepare us for whatever the future brings. Thinking Money strives to teach tweens, teens and their parents, caregivers and educators about financial literacy topics — like saving, spending and avoiding fraud — in a way that is not only understandable, but fun.

Through an adventure-themed storyline, interactive iPad content and other fun activities, the exhibition explores themes like wants vs. needs, preparing for a rainy/sunny day and imagining your future self.

Thinking Money will travel the country between 2016 and 2018. It will make its 6-week stop at the Campbell County Public Library Tuesday, December 12, 2017 through Tuesday, January 23, 2018. The exhibition will be hosted in the Newport Branch’s Presidents Room.
