Financial Literacy Programming for Your Library
Kim Jeffcoat, South Carolina Center for Children’s Books and Literacy, School of Library and Information Science, USC
Attendees will learn how to craft successful financial literacy programs for families in rural areas. Potential funding sources will be described, and participants will get to observe through video and photographs the impact of these events. We will also show participants how to incorporate a holistic view of literacy into their programs. A high energy Prezi filled with video and photographs will take participants along for the ride with Cocky, USC’s beloved mascot, as he leads the financial literacy charge into rural South Carolina. There will be time for discussion and Q&A afterwards. Participants will receive a bag, books and program outlines from our financial literacy programs to take with them.
You may park in any of the spaces at the rear of the building. Please enter through the Bull Street side door.
