18 Libraries Begin Smart Investing Program

Filed under: Educational Technology — admin @ 12:35 am


Across the state of Iowa, 18 rural libraries are getting ready to welcome the Smart investing@your library® project beginning in January 2013. This program is made possible by a grant from the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority Investor Education Foundation through Smart investing@your library, a partnership with the American Library Association. This special grant program funds public library efforts to provide library patrons with access to effective, non-commercial investor educational resources. The Iowa project is a collaboration among Iowa Library Services, the Ames Public Library and Iowa State University Extension and Outreach. “This is a win-win situation for the libraries and for Extension,” said Cynthia Fletcher, Iowa State professor and extension family resource management specialist. “It is a great opportunity for ISU Extension and Outreach to work with local libraries to educate Iowans about wise saving and investing.”
