Financial Literacy Education Resources

Posted on May 13, 2015 at 10:20 AM by Sarah Tenfelde-Dubois

Understanding the workings of personal finance, financial planning, lifestyle flexibility and locating helpful services become important tools in life. This includes starting at a young age and learning to make wise decisions about earning and spending, then moving on to thinking about how to prepare for retirement.

To help with financial literacy education, the State Library of Kansas has put together resources that might be helpful in education for all individuals, regardless of current life phase or economic status. For more information, please see our Financial Literacy for Kansans page. 

If you are a librarian or educator who wants to create a financial literacy program, the State Library has created a resource page that contains links to various curriculum resources, programming ideas, and possible grant opportunities.  The programming section has several links to free financial education publications that can be ordered for libraries. Also, be sure to check out the additional resources in the left hand column.

Feel free to use these helpful and knowledgeable links to find information on different topics of financial literacy and personal finance.
