The Orlando Public Library hosts Thinking Money, a new traveling exhibition designed to teach tweens, teens and the adults in their lives about money, from May 17 to June 26. The public is also invited to attend a variety of money-oriented programs about financial literacy, including the Money Talks for Women, a series happening in the Melrose Center at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesdays from May 22 through June 26, and programs designed to help children understand concepts like saving and earning.

“Money affects all of us, but many of us lack the information we need to make smart decisions about our financial futures,” said Orange County Library System Director/CEO Mary Anne Hodel. “Thinking Money is designed to teach us about financial literacy in a way that is not only understandable, but fun, and we’re proud to bring it to our library.”

Through an adventure-themed storyline, interactive iPad content and other fun activities,

Thinking Money explores themes like wants vs. needs, preparing for a rainy/sunny day, imagining your future self and avoiding financial fraud.

Programs will include Money Talks for Women, Money as You Grow and M is for Money. For a full calendar of library events, visit ocls.info/thinking-money or call 407-835-7323 for more information. Admission to the exhibition, which will be located on the second floor of the Orlando Public Library, 101 E. Central Blvd., and all programs are free of charge.

Thinking Money was created by the American Library Association (ALA) in partnership with the FINRA Investor Education Foundation. In April 2016, ALA and the FINRA Foundation announced 50 libraries nationwide to host the 1,000-square-foot exhibition. In addition to the exhibition loan, the Orange County Library System also received a $1,000 programming allowance, expenses paid for a training session at the 2016 ALA Annual Conference in June 2016, and promotional and support materials.
