I particularly wanted to highlight this upcoming webinar from Web Junction since several Oregon librarians are participating!

Libraries Help Patrons Become Financially Empowered Consumers

In this webinar, learn about the financial education resources you can use with your patrons, made available by the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau.

The Consumer Finance Protection Bureau<http://www.consumerfinance.gov/library-resources/> (CFPB) exists not only to protect consumers but to empower all of us to take more control over our economic lives. The CFPB recognizes the important role that libraries can play as the go-to source for unbiased financial education resources in every community. The CFPB plans to build a community financial education infrastructure with libraries and national partners to reach consumers in their neighborhoods, expanding on programs and resources that are already working in libraries. With this infrastructure in place, public libraries can help fill consumers' critical financial knowledge gaps by providing and distributing easy-to-understand, behaviorally informed financial education content. Learn how two libraries have implemented financial literacy program ideas, resources and tools, and connected with local partners, and hear how you can take your library and your community to the next level with patrons empowered to be informed consumers.

Presented by:

  *   Ken McDonnell, Financial Education Program Analyst, Office of Financial Education, Division of Consumer Education and Engagement, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau
  *   Meg Spencer, Director, Siuslaw Public Library District (OR)
  *   Thea Hart, Adult Services Librarian, Springfield Public Library (OR)
February 14, 2017, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
