Greensboro library receives federal funding for financial literacy

The Greensboro Public Library has received a $96,500 grant from the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, a federal agency that regulates securities firms that do business in the United States, to provide financial literacy education to teenagers. The grant program is funded from fines levied by the agency against securities firms for wrongdoing, a library press release states. The interactive financial workshops will be offered at library branches and online this summer. “Our first series of hands-on workshops will cover budgeting basics, handling checking and savings accounts, using credit responsibly and setting financial goals,” said business librarian Martha Thomas Larson in a prepared statement. “Next, participants will learn about the transition to adulthood, including the advantages of investing and the ‘latte factor,’ which focuses on how even small luxuries end up costing.” — JG
