The Bridgeport Public Library will host the 1,000-square-foot exhibition for a six-week period between August 29th and October 6th 2016 at the Downtown Burroughs – Saden Library.

“Through an adventure-themed story line, interactive iPad content and other fun activities, Thinking Money explores themes like wants vs. needs, preparing for a rainy day, imagining your future self and avoiding financial fraud.”

More than 130 public libraries from across the country applied for the opportunity to host the exhibition, according to the ALA Public Programs Office.

The public is also invited to attend various financial literacy programs such as:

Couponing 101, Car-Buying 101, Budgeting Workshop, One-on-one Financial Coaching Sessions, and many more.
