Newark Public Library’s Family Fun Fest Financial Fair
More than 700 parents and preschool-aged children attended the Newark (N.J.) Public Library Family Fun Fest financial fair December 1 to learn lifelong lessons in saving, spending, and sharing. The event, held at the Main Library, was the fifth and final fair of the library’s financial education initiative. The 18-month-long program featured activities to allow children, parents, and caregivers to participate in the learning experience and to enable adults to reinforce the lessons at home. Parents and caregivers learned how to introduce financial concepts and skills into their everyday routines and experiences with their children using activities and tips. The program was funded through a grant from the PNC Foundation.
