Money $marts MAY 2 - 22
This hands-on exhibit helps kids and teens learn to be great money managers with fun financial games and interactive elements to test their money knowledge. Each interactive panel targets a specific age group – preschool, elementary, middle school and high school. Money $marts was developed by Washington-Centerville Public Library, in cooperation with Boonshoft Museum of Discovery, and was funded by a grant from the FINRA Investor Education Foundation through Smart investing@your library®, a partnership with the American Library Association.
