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.
Everyone from newborns to seniors are invited to participate in this year’s summer reading program. Just 20 minutes a day is all we ask for you to start your way toward earning a prize! It is shown that kids who read just 20 minutes avoid the “summer slide” and return to school ready to learn.
Using Wandoo Reader kids and teens choose an avatar, gain power and level up while counting up minutes to win prizes all summer long!
Through the generosity of the “Friends of the BPL” The Bridgeport Public Library is in the process of greatly expanding its foreign language collection. In addition to our extensive system collection of Spanish language materials, books will be available in the following languages Bengali, Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, and Vietnamese.
These books are now available at the main Burroughs – Saden Library!
Over time, our foreign language collection will continue to grow both at our main library and our four branch libraries as we continue to serve the diverse population that makes up the Bridgeport community.
The Bridgeport Public Library is happy to announce that it is now a Funding Information Network Partner. In cooperation with the Foundation Center, the Library will be providing access to databases of potential funders for local non-profits and individuals.
Workshops and training will also be presented for those new to grant seeking.
