MONEY FOR TEENS: MAKING, SPENDING AND SAVING
Make sure your teen has the financial "cents" to make good money decisions by enrolling him or her in one of the "Smart investing@your library®" workshops in July and August. The program is free and offered at six different Library locations. Teens who attend will receive a financial "toolkit" and a chance to win cool prizes like an iPod Touch, as they learn how to make, spend, and save wisely through hands-on activities, games, and more. Learn more at Teenspace.CincinnatiLibrary.org. This program is made possible by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) Investor Education Foundation and the American Library Association and will be lead and presented by Teen Librarians and grant partner, the Ohio State University Extension Office.
