”Money Smart Week has been very helpful with assisting libraries to promote financial literacy to our local families. Our library has received books that we promote to families with children of different ages. It’s never too early for families to discuss money management. My personal favorite was sharing Little Critters Just Saving My Money. It was a hit with our preschool to early elementary aged children.”
