Financial Literacy Month in April

Posted on April 4, 2017 at 10:59 AM by Sarah Tenfelde-Dubois

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 page. 

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 tab on the State Library’s website. These resources are from the state government, as well as other organizations and agencies.
