Three Wyoming Libraries Awarded Financial Literacy Kits from ALA and FINRA

Feb 5, 2024

Three Wyoming libraries were among the 300 U.S. libraries selected through a competitive application process to receive materials to teach children ages three to twelve about financial literacy. Goshen County Library in Torrington, Meeteetse Library in Meeteetse, and Natrona County Public Library in Casper will each be receiving a Thinking Money for Kids Program Kit (estimated kit value: $2,000) in order to provide financial literacy programming for kids during the program’s duration from September 2024 through December 2025.

“We’re so excited to get the materials and use them,” said Linda Seaton, Meeteetse Library Manager. “We were so happy to be selected.”

Thinking Money for Kids is an initiative of the American Library Association (ALA) and the FINRA Investor Education Foundation that has the goal of instructing children and their parents, caregivers, and educators about financial literacy topics including: saving, spending, sharing and budgeting in a meaningful and fun way. The kits each of the three selected libraries have been awarded include resources that have been vetted by experts in the field and will offer educational opportunities both at the library and at home.

Congratulations to Goshen County Library, Meeteetse Library, and Natrona County Public Library!
