About Smart Investing


Riverside County Library System was selected to participate in a grant funded by the FINRA Investor Education Foundation and the American Library Association to develop and provide programs to support grassroots financial literacy to Riverside County communitiies.

The participating libraries created innovative programs for specific audiences which will be replicated in other libraries in Riverside County and beyond. The programs ranged from a series of workshops on topics leading to gaining money skills for life, introducing financial literacy topics to ESL students, creating a series of events and games for children to help them develop "money cents," coupling parenting workshop sessions with story times on corresponding topics for pre-schoolers to a Morning Coffee Investment Club.

RCLS gratefully acknowledges and thanks the FINRA Foundation and the American Library Association for selecting us to participate in Smart Investing @ your library*.
