Earn, Save, Spend, Budget! Kids Can Learn about Personal Finance through New Library Offerings
Soon, young people ages 3-12 years old, will have the opportunity to learn about financial topics — like earning, saving, spending, sharing and budgeting — in a way that is both meaningful and fun through new programming provided by the Delta Public Library. Keep updated through our Facebook page, our newsletter, or our website calendar for when to visit the library for in-person kids’ programs or take home a tablet loaded with fun games, offered through the Thinking Money for Kids program.
The Delta Public Library has been selected to receive a Thinking Money for Kids Program Kit from the American Library Association (ALA) and the FINRA Investor Education Foundation. The Program Kit is a collection of expertly vetted resources to help libraries teach financial education concepts for children ages 3 to 12, both in the library and in children’s homes.
Selected through a national application process, the Delta Public Library is one of 300 libraries to receive this unique offering.
Playaway Launchpads are kid-friendly tablets designed to continue learning at home. The Launchpads don’t require a home internet connection and will be available for checkout at the Delta Public Library in the spring. Games that are pre-loaded on the Launchpads also have corresponding physical games in the library including Pet Cents, Making Mooo-lah, Currency Conga and Penny Pinchers’ Party.
