BPL Will Staff an Exhibit Booth at the 2016 Alabama Money Expo
The 3rd annual Alabama Money Expo will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 5, 2016, at G. W. Carver High School in Birmingham, Alabama, and the Birmingham Public Library (BPL) will once again be participating. The free event consists of workshops, demonstrations, exhibits, and counseling sessions aimed at helping members of the community learn more about personal finance and money management issues. Some of the topics to be addressed at the expo include budgeting, investing, paying for college, estate planning, managing credit, and income tax preparation. Many of the activities are planned with teenagers and their parents in mind, but attendees of all ages will find much to learn and benefit from during the day.
Staff members from the Birmingham Public Library’s Business, Science and Technology Department will be working an exhibit booth in the Finances, Estate and Retirement Planning Zone of the expo’s Main Exhibit Hall. Here, attendees can expect to find lots of flyers, brochures, and handouts promoting library resources related to financial literacy and consumer education. Some of the kinds of resources that the library staff will be promoting at the Expo can be viewed on the Personal Finance subject resource page on the BPL website.
The Alabama Money Expo is sponsored by Financial Education Outreach (FEO), a local nonprofit organization committed to building financial security for individuals and families through a variety of educational services and opportunities. Further information about the expo can be found on the event’s website and the FEO website.
