Descriptions

As the US economy continues to struggle, information on financial matters is increasingly important.  While libraries have many resources available, many are little-known, underused, and difficult for patrons to navigate.  Join us to learn about a variety of resources and programs that will help you to provide competent, unbiased financial information to your patrons—at little or no cost beyond staff time.  We’ll explore passive programs, active programs, traditional and new ideas.  Bring your success stories and challenges to a lively discussion of what works, what doesn’t, and where to turn for help.

After attending this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Create engaging programs for your patrons on Money Matters at little or no cost beyond staff time.
  • Promote and host programs designed to appeal to specific groups—women, teens, senior citizens, personal finance experts, and more.
  • Connect your users with unbiased financial information resources using social media tools.
