Eureka joins libraries across the nation for Money Smart Week
The Eureka Public Library is among the many libraries participating in Money Smart Week®, April 10 – 17. Virtual programs will focus on one daily “Money Smart” theme. Content will be provided by government, non-profit and educational institutions through a combination of 10-15-minute presentations, checklists, toolkits and other pertinent resources.
Money Smart Week programming will focus on supporting the needs of low to-moderate income households – those most affected by COVID-19 – to encourage greater financial well-being in their communities.
Created by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago in 2002, Money Smart Week® is a public awareness campaign designed to help consumers better manage their personal finances. The American Library Association (ALA) is among several partnering organizations that participate.
