Digital resource of the week: Teaching your kids about finances (e-course)

April is Financial Literacy Month! While we learn to navigate life during the stay-at-home order, visit the Kansas City Public Library’s growing digital resource library online!

In collaboration with the Kansas City Public Library’s North-East branch, this week’s digital resource of the week is “Teaching your kids about finances,” an e-course that teaches parents how to successfully talk to your kids and teach them smart money habits.

This course is available on lynda.com and is FREE with your library card.
