A Financial Expedition

Oct. 24 - Nov. 29, 2017
North Courthouse Road Library
 
 

Thinking Money, a new traveling exhibition designed to teach young people and their families about money — including 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, Thinking Money explores themes like wants vs. needs, preparing for a rainy/sunny day and imagining your future self. The exhibition is for tweens, teens and the adults in their lives.

CCPL will host the 1,000-square-foot exhibition at its North Courthouse Road Library from Oct. 24-Nov. 29, 2017. The library will also receive a $1,000 programming allowance to hold public events related to financial topics, as well as training and support materials. Information on programs will be available in Spring 2017.
