Thinking Money Exhibit Kick-Off Event

Be one of the first to tour our Thinking Money Exhibit at our kick-off event. Thinking Money is a museum-quality traveling exhibition that strives to teach tweens, teens and their parents, caregivers and educators about financial literacy topics—like saving, spending and avoiding fraud—in a way that is not only understandable, but fun.

In additional to the interactive exhibit, at 6 pm members of Bitty Box, a local screen printing business run by area teenagers at GIAC, will be giving a presentation on what it’s like to run your own business. From 5 – 6, you’ll also be able to make your own duct-tape wallet and play games for a chance to win prizes.

Thinking Money was developed by the American Library Association Public Programs Office in collaboration with the FINRA Investor Education Foundation, whose support made this exhibition possible.
