About

Smart investing @ your library is a grant-funded program developed collaboratively by the American Library Association and the FINRA Investor Education Foundation. The program addresses the growing need for unbiased financial and investor education at the grassroots level.

Since its launch in 2007, participating libraries and their community partners have helped people nationwide find the information they need to improve their financial decisions.

The materials on this website grew out of those projects. Developed by innovative librarians during tough financial times, the tools here are patron-tested, practical and free. We hope the information helps you start a financial education program in your library soon.
