Smart investing@your library® is administered jointly by the FINRA Investor Education Foundation and the American Library Association. Through grants, exhibits and librarian training, this program supports efforts to provide library patrons with access to effective, unbiased financial education resources.
Participating libraries use a variety of strategies to bring quality financial and investor education opportunities within easy reach of diverse groups of library patrons at no cost to them. Through the program, library patrons are empowered to make smart financial decisions, both for long-term investing and day-to-day money matters. The program is especially concerned with helping those who might otherwise have limited access to important information relevant to their financial well-being.
Since 2007, Smart investing@your library has awarded 133 grants totaling over $10 million. Application is by invitation only.
