Asian Services In Action (ASIA Inc.) will present Financial Literacy workshops for Burmese and Nepali refugee families to learn about budgeting, banking, credit and more.
This program is being held in conjunction with the Thinking Money exhibit, which is will be on display at Main Library from September 1st through October 6th. 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.
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.
