The Library partnered with the Dolan School of Business and the Office of Financial Aid to host an event celebrating Money Smart Week today. Students and staff stopped by the library lobby to ask the experts their financial questions. Thank you to Scott Brenner, CPA and Professor of Accounting, and Shirley Klein, Assistant Director of Financial Aid for fielding all of the questions! There was a raffle, finance handouts, and money mints and chocolate gold coins to enjoy while chatting with the financial experts one-on-one.
What is Money Smart Week? Celebrated April 22-29, 2017, the American Library Association and the Federal Reserve Bank (Chicago) encourage communities to promote financial literacy through Money Smart Week programming. The DiMenna-Nyselius Library joined hundreds of other libraries across the country helping individuals to better manage their personal finances. In 2016, over 900 libraries participated from almost all states. #moneysmartweek
