American Library Association

The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago began partnering with the American Library Association (ALA) in 2011 as part of the expansion of Money Smart Week®.

All libraries are invited to participate during April 22 - 29, 2017!

If you are in a state that has a Money Smart Week coalition you are encouraged to connect with them. If your state does not yet have a Money Smart Week coalition you can participate on your own.
