Library Receives FINRA Grant for Teen Financial Literacy Program!



The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County was awarded a $57,853 grant from the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) Investor Education Foundation and the American Library Association as part of the nationwide Smart investing@your library® program. With the funds, the Library created a financial literacy program for teenagers.

Teens will participate in personal finance workshops at selected Library branches this winter. Each program includes topics such as setting financial goals, making money, saving, creating and maintaining a personal budget, using bank services, managing credit card and loan debt, and avoiding scams.  The programs will be lead and presented by Teen Librarians and grant partner, the Ohio State University Extension Office.  View more information here!
