Financial Literacy is recognized in the month of April, and Money Smart Week
begins on April 22 this year. Financial Literacy Month is a great time to highlight the importance of financial literacy, and learning how to manage personal finances can be achieved by being informed and having access to good resources.
The State Library of Kansas has put together resources that might be helpful for financial literacy education for all individuals, including coverage for multiple age ranges and interest levels. For more information, please see our Financial Literacy for Kansans
Additionally, be sure to check out the Resources at the State Library
page. These are databases that have information available for residents of Kansas that deal with financial literacy. New this year is the addition of Universal Class, a database which offers online courses. Users can search for finance related courses that include titles like Personal Finance 101
, and Retirement Planning
. Also, the Financial Literacy Digital Books
page has different titles available through several platforms that can help with personal finance.
For further information, some links to financial literacy resources are highlighted on the Financial Organizations in Kansas
